Francisco Osório centers his artistic practice around the issues of registering and representing space, giving the objects he collects or registers a character of construction and authorial dematerialization. Her work does not have a mandatory beginning or end, but focuses on the path of continuous experimentation and processual documentation – from the record to its understanding, from this to its deconstruction, and return to a new record.
