This is a pipe  is an appropriation of Rene magritte's Treachery of  images. It proposes negation as method to delineate an object. The act of selecting  is also a process of exclusion. On this piese one of the thing that i want to achieve is to give a character to the absence. To organized, shape and develop a structure for the excluded. it poses a question, where the colonial narration are strongly rooted in exclusion of any intellectual and cultural cultural achievements of the developing worlds.  Can negation narration or shaping the exclude can be used as a possible way integrating decolonization discourse?
