In 2014, Isabel Marcos contacted the mothers of four expats by phone. During the conversation she asked them to describe the house of their sons/daughters, even though they had never been there. These oral portraits of those spaces, based only on few photos, their childrens’ occasional comment and Skype backgrounds lacked precise spatial references and were full of emotional load.
Es así como de color turquesa (It’s like turquoise colour) is an artwork by Isabel Marcos that presents an architectural representation based on fragmented descriptions, inconsistent memories, imaginative desires and strong projections, that invites the reader to explore an affective dimension of space.
Isabel Marcos (Spain, 1986) is an artist that sometimes likes to put wheels on her furniture.
