a veil is not a curtain info

A veil is not a curtain is a piece of work where a seemingly weightless, large plastic cloth is hung up in distinct places & landscapes. The intervention usually lasts no longer than a day.
The veil itself is made of hundreds of colored plastic bags, all stitched together. The material is so light and airy that hanging it up in open air often means putting it into very precarious and even detrimental conditions: the wind, the sun and the rain can have their go with the veil.
In every instance the action is widely photographed, filmed and recorded.
For every hang out there is also a time of recovery and rest in which the damage to the veil is repaired and new actions are planned.
The project will come to an end the moment the veil is exhausted and becomes no more than a relic of itself.
