Angela Wilson presents her body of work: "Phantasm," in which historical photographs were the substrate of the artwork.
This series is an homage to Angela's grandaunt Teresa Wilms Montt (b. 1893 -1921). As an entangled process where psychological and literal projections turned on several portraits painted in trans-lucid fabrics. Her grandaunt's photographs and poems were projected and drawn, stitched in layers of veils, creating a symbolic space in which time converges in a deep sum of different material coverings.
With this series, Angela Wilson wants to highlight her grandaunt as a Chilean poet who has become an example of feminist claims, acknowledging her work hidden behind her tragic life. This homage intends to repair years of Therese ́s invisibility and women artists' struggles.
