about this work
'Split Knife/ Infinito works on the performative power of the word, its capacity for modifying the enviroment from immateriality. How can a cutting edge of language be represented in order to modify something? The invisible cutting edge of language is not material, but it has an incidence on matter. You can modify behavior through words. Here I intended to lead the viewer towards looking at the knife to see if it was actually there: to look at the invisible, to look where there is nothing to see, to concentrate on that nothing...Violence is a component part of our creative engine. The work is finding out how to channel violence so that it does not destroy everything.'
