Artist Statement

The “readymades” of Marcel Duchamp are everyday fabricated objects that he chose to alter as a correction to what he called “retinal art”. He chose mass-produced, commercially accessible, often-functional objects, giving them titles and labelling them as art. By simply selecting the object (objects) and shuffle or joining, selecting a new caption or just signing it, the “found object” becomes art. In the series “Navigation Through Imagination” the Chilean born Norwegian conceptual photographer Paulina Cid is interested in carrying the legacy of Duchamp forward, by using everyday object as a representation of life.
