Veil of Invisibility
by Cristina Garrido
This ongoing project consists of pictorial interventions on postcards purchased from international museums and galleries of contemporary art.
It investigates the idea of the artwork as a commodity within the institutional context, the notion of artist authorship, the relationship between artworks and documentation and the battle for representation between painting and photography.
My intervention consists in making the artwork disappear from the postcard. This removal is negative only in appearance, as, on the mechanically reproduced artwork, I add a layer of paint that turns the postcard into a unique object, altering its value.
Its installation in the exhibition space aims to explore the current curatorial practices by involving curators to curate the piece every time is shown via a set of prepared guidelines.
