Interior/Exterior Field was created in London with the intention of raising questions about South American identity. The scraps chosen suggest a provenance in which manufacturing processes still prevail. They are sacks for storing Brazilian coffee, newspapers of South American communities, and handmade artists’ canvasses, all of which are used to construct a large-scale fabric that is only held together by the physical weight of being piled up. The precariousness of the construction contrasts ironically with the intense labour used to build this held-together territory.
