I am a crystal goblet cast into the sea | 2004



Intimately connected with the destruction of my parents’ home in Recife, this work represents a moment of personal rupture and subsequent transformation. The glasses and goblets collected over a twenty-year period were broken during the mounting of the exhibition, in the exclusive presence of the curator and a cameraman.
