Isabel Brison attempts to use photomontage as a tool for manipulating space in a projectual sense, not limited to the creation of fictions but focused instead on considering the unofficial use potential of certain places. These works are sometimes accompanied by texts that describe in raw and unadorned terms their process of creation and the intentions underlying it.
