LAS 400 VUELTAS / THE 400 LAPS (2012)
'The 400 Laps' functions as a large installation-scaled book with a digital animation alluding to the French novelist Jean Genet. In this novel, Genet has been falsely impersonated leading to his paranoia and confines to solitude. The cover of the book (writen in reallity by me) falsely attributes the novel to James Elrroy; the American thriller writer who became psychologically unstable after the death of his mother. The figure paces back and forth through a doorway becoming his alter ego and blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction. On the backside of the enlarged book is a small lit shelf with a copy of The 400 Laps / Las 400 vueltas. TEXT: SPA / ENG / GER
