THE PRESENCE OF YOUR ABSENCE

2007-2020
Dimensions variable
Fine art print on paper

The presence of your absence is an ongoing typology of hotel rooms. Usually predestined to be occupied by pairs, the rooms emanate a melancholic emptiness. Crumpled bed sheets and half opened curtains are the only indicators of a lingering presence, stressing the transient character of these temporary homes.
