"Objects are semantically worn out before their materiality." - Umberto Eco.

Project made between 2007-2011, winner of the inter-university salon of the Academia Superior de Artes de Bogota ASAB 2008. This project was shown at the Images of archive exhibition. The curator of this exhibition was Jaime Ceron - Museum of Antioquia 2010. Solo exhibition "Invitados" at the El garage gallery in 2011. Also, it was shown partially at the Odeon art fair 2011.

In this project, I show the "finished works" as an artistic practice, and I adopt pictorial reproduction as an element of the presentation of invitations for different exhibitions. I use the painting in its traditional institutional framework to return the images to their initial place. That illustrates a preamble to what people could have seen at the exhibition. Some of them are the reproduced images of an exhibited work.

Therefore, from the beginning, they are a fundamental part of the exhibition. The project frames the documentary importance of the invitations since the viewer can reactivate with what was shown at the exhibition. Even if, for some reason, they have not seen the printed invitation or attended the exhibition.

This project proposes a reflection towards the additional importance that all the processes of making "works of art" have. In this case, the viewer's gaze is directed towards some processes like the diffusion and exhibition of "works of art". These processes are necessary for activating the works. But, due to the lack of awareness, they tend to be displaced to the background.
