The work of Adriana Bustos has an investigative approach, concerned with revisiting social phenomena and the way history is written. Her Burning Books series is an ongoing project on censorship. These bookcase-like pieces display hand-rendered covers of books that were banned or burnt. Laborious drawing is at the core of Bustos’ method, an alchemy through which the images’ energetic load is reworked when filtered by the artist’s hand.
