The word and its power of intervention on the surroundings is the reference Eduardo T. Basualdo alludes to in this sculpture. A composition, simple in terms of the elements it is comprised of, but at the same time very sensationalist at the same time – a habitual appearance in his work – articulated around a used knife with the particularity that it has a double-edged blade. He resorts to a material object to describe something immaterial: the word; inviting spectators to reflect on language and its capacity to transform reality, by confronting them with something that does not exist, activating our mechanism for perception and awareness in an extremely subtle way.
