Characters to be reactivated, 1991-1995




The series of "Characters to be reactivated" appear as living sculptures, during the inauguration of group exhibitions. After the opening, during the exhibition, the living character is replaced by its representation, that is a unique print (cibachromes 60 x 90 cm). These prints work as representations but also as tools, as they are the certificates and instruction forms for the reactivations of the characters. Someone buying the photo is also buying the right to reactivate the character.
