OFFBEAT DEPOSIT

These drawings are based on a 10 year long fieldwork in which I put together a photo log of the interior spaces of several care homes. Translating this material into plastic works, resulted in a series of drawings of pieces of furniture and objects.

These objects belonged to the inhabitants of these homes. They are not just their personal belongings, but also objects with a strong emotional significance for their owners. In general, a person arrives at these places accompanied by their most beloved belongings. In fact, those items are not only loaded with historical, intimate and emotional meanings, but are, in essence, therapeutic resources. It has been proved that it is easier to adapt to the nursing home if the patient’s new room is “decorated” with elements of their old home.

The term offbeat describes, in music, a melody in which musical notes and silences occur interspersed.  In my opinion, this is how life goes on in those homes. A dynamic generated by the alternating of the past and the present.
