La Nada o el Infinito is an edition based on a book intervention produced by the artist jointly with Naranja Publicaciones.
The original work, with the same title, is a volume with poems by the Chilean writer José M. Aldunate Undurraga published in Santiago de Chile in 1958, which was modified in its original version by various material operations that treat the idea of nothing as absence and the infinite as an endless sequence.
This publication is part of two collections of artist’s books: Fundação Serralves in Oporto, Portugal; and The Joan Flasch Artists’ Books Collection in Chicago, United States.
