Drawings by Kopelman based on historical maps dated from the XVI to XIX centuries. 'Logicas Desviadas' is the first volume of the series 'Notes on Representation' by Kopelman.
"I hope to make evident that it is impossible to enclose the complexity of things in departmentally tight categories: During the 19th century, a scientific project needed to force things into categories in order to visualize the rules to which they respond and organize the world in a logical system. This was a fundamental process to schematize how we look at things and simplify it to the extreme, thus overlooking any singularities. I aim to reopen the category of sameness and, by means of representation, I hope to make evident that it is impossible to enclose the complexity of things in departmentally tight categories.
I wish to explore the link in between two sources, the direct contact with the landscape and the mediated contact with it via the museum collections. I am keen to search for a way to put together these elements, working towards a generation of a narrative which will emerge when all these components coexist.
This dynamic of difference and repetition is the central axis of my works."
