project description

Objetos fuera de casa

Someone once claimed that if error is opposed to truth, appearance is opposed to reality. What happens then when art, from its mechanisms of manipulation and seduction, is capable of creating an appearance that supplants and puts in crisis the values of said reality? In my work I start from the simulacrum as a resource or modus operandi to manipulate certain elements associated with our individual or collective memory, many times from a process of fragmentation or accumulation, which allows me to unpin them and mutate them towards a double aestheticized nature in whose utopia and Persuasive speech could hide a desire, a deprivation or the key to a true essence.
