Rupture, is an installation that consists of an aluminum plate, struck vertically only halfway, on which a video with two images is projected. The images seem to mirror each other, but in fact they are two distinct images. In the image on the left we see the forest and each landscape element approaching the camera. In the image on the right, the elements of nature are moving away from the camera. We could say that the one on the left is facing forward, and the one on the right is facing backwards. Both images confront each other according to a disconcerting dichotomy reinforced by the illusion of symmetry: forward and backward; approaching and distancing from something. The movement of both images converge towards the central and vertical axis of the plate, and coincides with the clipping in the stainless-steel screen, as if time was interrupted to reveal its double temporality.
