In Suspension 
(En Suspensió) is a short video-essay that departs from an act of iconoclasm that scatters a Renaissance sculpture. It also builds on the release of particulate matter into the air, forming invisible clouds of marble dust as a result of the attack. The videowork also approaches the impossibility of grasping these tiny elements, despite the fact that they are still rock and, as such, contain matter memory.

In Suspension is a spin-off from a long-term research project, which analyses iconoclasm from the perspective of new materialisms. For its formalisation, it adapts instruments and methodologies from the disciplines of geology, chemistry, restoration and conservation while it conceives new participatory strategies for interviewing the perpetrator of the attack to an iconic sculpture in Florence.
