Who it is who comes
In english grammar, there is a form called the passive voice, where an action is described without mentioning the agent, the ball was thrown, the meal was cooked. I like the space where the agent should be. The work is about agency. The photographs were taken in the disused Cal Garbrat fabric factory in Vilasar de Dalt near Barcelona. The factories had been built in the late 19C, they had their heyday in the early 20C and went into decline between the first and second world wars. The last things to be made there were silk screen printed t-shirts for pissed up british people on the near by island of Mallorca. That company had collapsed rapidly to the point it looked more like they had had to escape rather than just quit and leave. They left screens, cloth for t-shirts and ink barrels as well as piles of accounts and other paperwork. I rather liked the mysterious and slightly creepy feeling that remained so I built sculptures with this jetsam I found in the building and then photographed the process of destroying these items. Using the pinhole meant that my interventions were hidden but had an increasingly destructive effect including on the image.
