Things (I Get Rid Of) is a project about decluttering and surplus of stuff we accumulate.
The work was initiated with the precise purpose of publishing it periodically on Instagram.
Things is also a reflection on that compulsive behavior driving us to photograph and post what we own as a status of what we are. However, Things goes the opposite direction, representing objects that are no longer part of my life.
Almost imitating a ritual to capture the thing’s soul, every object I no longer need is first immortalized in a drawing and then thrown away, handed down or sold.
The drawing as a medium acts as a filter and interpretation, freezing an ideal view of the object itself as I remember it and not how it really is.
