Bruno Silva’s art process is about gathering information, objects and experiences. In his project “Unnamed_0.2.1.1 ”,  Silva seeks to bring together Lost, found, roundabout images. The world keeps productng an infinite number of images that end up being forgotten in time. Once they are found, they build a world ; a galery of memoirs of the memory ; a dust¬bin of  « non-images » of the world.

Unnamed_0.2.1.1 is a  « non-place » where history, time and space are all mixed up.
