Hearth Pieces (2001)and other related portraits

Finely cutout portraits of a family surround a ghostly figure in a conjuring or scéance-like scenario. The central figure, the artist's great grandmother, floats queen-like in the centre of the room while the surrounding portraits create a horizon around her and mark the edges of memory.
As with all Cardelús photo-based work, family snapshots are reworked materially in order to pierce their opaque and inaccessible surfaces to release and share the intensity of subjectivity experience.
