interview in Antena 2, by Mafalda Serrano:
part I
part II







I look at the images created by Francesca Woodman, images she inhabits delivering a disturbing presence. Surrealistic fragments.
They are printed in me.
Inside my head, a tornado of images, my body filled with lost movements.
Free thoughts.
Words meandering. Words projected in a paper in a glided flight.
How many ways do we have to peel an orange?
How many grains of sand have our planet?
My eyes feel of sand. They are
of sand. They vanish with the wind. They dissolve, they change, they transform me , they modify what I see; and what I don't see becomes visible. I'm feeling tired recently... of sand, without skeleton.
Cláudia Nóvoa, September 2007

...I have sand in my scalp, sleepy sand in eyes, sandpaper tongue, sand thoughts all from the sea. That is where I was instead of anything else all Weekend...
Francesca Woodman, 1973
