The works in the “gaps” series  are constructed from torn threads of textile articles such as sheets, bedspreads and curtains from donations or discards from other people and mine, on a nail loom measuring 180 x 130 cm. This research guides a large part of my work, which is finding clothes, fabrics and various materials and subjecting them to a process of deconstruction, tearing, cutting until everything is converted into threads. After that, sometimes, the threads are dyed before starting the weaving process. Go filling the structure the loom, which is nothing more than a wooden structure; requires patience and a lot of resistance, since it is a work that requires Effort beyond the hands, also the body, which is in constant movement in a process of delivery and discipline.This work connects me with a ritualistic practice of reinvention and, at the same time, an encounter with ancestry.
