“The movement back and forth (fold and unfold) appears in the construction of the title as well as the assembly work on the wall, where the sequence can be read as expansion or contraction. This circular motion suggests a place suspended between a position taken (unfold a flag) and a sense of powerlessness and apathy facing a dark socio-political landscape (fold a flag),” says Galan. And yet, the work deals with the paradox of infinite geometric division of a plane, in other words, with the premise that we can theoretically divide the area into two equal parts infinitely.
