In a group exhibition at Museum of Art of Ribeirao Preto on June, 2008 I saw the artwork “Ao Tonico com Amor” [To Tonico with love], a wooden dollhouse by artist Vera Barbieri.
In August of the same year, I set up in the same place and with the same size of Barbieri’s artwork a two-dimensional version of the dollhouse ("Camouflaged Past I").
In 2009, I remade another version of the dollhouse, "Camouflaged Past II", using as a main material the wooden floor of the exhibition room.
Five years later, in 2014, I made a permanent version of "Camouflaged Past II" and the "Camouflaged Past III", as a ghost of the original dollhouse. The three installations are part of the MARP's collection.
