'Red Space' constitutes a development of the project 'Empty Space' and follows a similar approach to exploring the notion of abstraction in photography. Here, instead of the pieces of thread I use my menstrual blood as a way of intervening in the space and playing with reality. In addition to the associations related to the female body, notions of birth, and performance, these images share strong similarities with abstract expressionist paintings. They raise further questions about how space can be represented in abstract photography and about the status of the photograph itself as an abstract image.
