TEXT ME WHEN YOU GET HOME 
'Carlos Alba's research stemmed from the discovery of family pictures in which his grandmother had consistently removed the face of his grandfather by cutting through the photographic paper. Carlos found further documents evidencing domestic abuse, such as X-ray scans, mutilated photographs, and letters. Informed by family memory, Carlos engaged in an enquiry on domestic violence and patriarchy. Text me when you get home is the latest development of Carlos' exploration of the issue: composed of a collection of found videos depicting looping sequences of brutality, the work re ects on the banalisation process of gendered crimes. Carlos' phone number will be printed on one of the wall of the exhibition space and viewers will be able to text to receive the video. This process offers the choice to the visitors to view and therefore confront, or ignore.'
