This particular sequence is constructed from numerous different series of ‘FotoWorks’ by Fernando. Therefore, I would encourage anyone who is intrigued by these marvelous works to click on each individual image to view texts & tags. This will resignify the speech of each image and each series, allowing for a better understanding of context and a further appreciation of the artists original intent.

Yvonne Lacet : “Movements of a City” (paper sculptures)

::

Starting point of this project is the ever-changing urban environment. Places where things are constantly built, demolished and rebuilt. Places where old and new merge in extraordinary ways. By creating transparent paper sculptures of buildings and their surroundings during different periods in time, thus creating locations that are, that will be or that have been, I want to map different eras of a city in a single image. By layering the transparent sculptures you will be able to see the vague shadows of many faces of the city through time. [Extract : Yvonne Lacet – Movements of a City]

I am fascinated by city surroundings, nature and interiors where a strong artificial character appears. A shopping mall decorated with flower boxes and lights. A lawn with rows of the same plants, a reception room with orange colored trash bins. Similarity, patterns and construction are keywords to my work. From my observations I create sketches which I develop into paper sculptures. Eventually these sculptures are photographed, which places them back into ‘reality’.

My work is about simplifying things – sights, objects and situations, to images of basic shapes and structures. It’s about removing context and reference from them, and then recreating them with nothing more than basic shapes and materials, like paper squares or sheets. I like to work with paper and cardboard because of the simplicity of the material. A white piece of paper almost stands as a symbol for empty or blank. My work can be seen as models without paint or decoration, a characterless blankness, though with strong resemblance to the living world. [artist statement]
