The relationship between the self and the collective consciousness, our perception of reality and the gaps in history–that indicate we know very little about the world around us–are recurrent subjects in Sabrina Barrios' work. To bring them to life, research on ancient history, psychology, metaphysics and quantum mechanics are combined with bodily explorations, inspired by the Brazilian Neo-Concrete movement of the 60’s.
Pieces created in different mediums take shape, so that a higher level of accuracy is achieved in the narrative. Each material delivers a distinct message. In the 3D drawings (geometric structures), for instance, the viewers are invited to participate and create their own paths within the piece. The installation is a metaphor for one's trajectory, made out of unique decisions. And like life, the work is born to later disappear.
