Jairo Llano Colombia, b. 1979
The tension of papers next to each other breaks their original shapes and changes constantly. Photography is the witness of an instant in the movement of these elements.
As a result of my training as an architect, I believe that space is the ideal vessel for any metaphor one would care to explore. My relationship with space can be as direct as my relationship with a person, allowing me to abstract the subject matter that I analyze in my work.
If I had to describe the photography I do in a single word, I would say that all my projects investigate IDENTITY. Each series I create responds to questions I have asked myself about what I want to be instead of what I “should be.”
Thus, my pictures address subjects such as the creation of boundaries, the new meanings that objects bring into a landscape, the recycling of memory elements, and the creation of memories, trails, and artifacts of what I’ve done.
I photograph, analyze, and forge new relationships between the images I make and the ones I find around me. My series feed off daily life, off elements (often photographs) that lead me to create relationships that trigger reflections about my obsession to question the structure of my life.
In this documentation of paper sculptures, I concentrate on the playful task of creating an arrangement that can only be shared through images. The tension of papers next to each other breaks their original shapes and changes constantly. Photography is the witness of an instant in the movement of these elements.
