In October 2012, Argentine artist Cecile Perret was invited by the haudenschildGarage to do an intervention on an antique cabinet in Buenos Aires, Argentina.


I am still amazed, haunted, and maybe even obsessed by the relationship between inside and outside - what other direction could I ever have taken?

More than anything when the subject/victim of this intervention is a piece of furniture that is already playing with this idea, in a boring way maybe, but it's there: in the see-through glass and mirrors, in the confined and the secret spaces.

It was screaming out and I just made it obvious, only this time the contrast was greater.

The outside: a computer/machine/man. Cold, electronic, awkward.

The inside: guts. A surprise you wouldn't expect in such a cold and sad piece of metal. The human bit.

There is in me at this point a fascination with guts. I think maybe for a while I was equally fascinated by the outside. Now I'm taking a lot of pleasure going through these paint surgeries, wanting to see what things are made of.

All of those strange connections and chemical transactions happening in hidden places...

In 2010, Cecile was commissioned by the haudenschildGarage to create a graffiti mural in a space in Buenos Aires. She collaborated on this project with Lucía Brutta.
