Split ends appear when the cuticle, which is the outer part of the thread, is damaged or parched. The split ends are split hair, the ends of which split: split in two, three or more. Split ends also indicates the strategy of doubling the ends, of feinting and multiplying them so that they are not closed univocal. Split is a term commonly used to make a screen at least double. In this exhibition, double ends found in Galeria Presença’s history and in the work of the artists it represents were reactivated, which again install themselves through the occupation of the objects summoned to the space. This montage practice also allows us to imagine other artistic encounters that invent new connections. I mean, DOUBLE.”
