    About The Work

    In Abridged (Anne of Green Gables), Valeska Soares arranged, side by side, forty pages of the Canadian novel Anne of Green Gables, forming a grid that starts and ends with a missing page. Soares covered the text in each page with black ink geometric forms (square forms made from small dots, ink-filled circles, thin vertical straight lines, horizontal thick lines). In an act that is partly revealing and partly concealing, the fusion of text and drawings work as "triggers that activate memories and contexts." The result is an open narrative with multiple readings that are brought to life by the viewer and by the context in which the piece is experienced.
