LA DANZA / THE DANCE
2014

Millions of men on this planet dance to the rhythm of a song they do not understand, and infernal dance that forces them to follow the music as they can, if they hope to be part of the social groups.

This installation is a celestial blue cube, the same color as the underwear. Inside it becomes a black circle, to which a 160 x 1800 cm digital photograph printed on photographic paper is glued. In the center of the circle a basket with celestial blue underwear is placed. The light reproduces the rhythm, creating an effect of motion. Kusturica’s music sounds in a loop. Once spectators enter the installation they become part of the dance, emphasizing the effect of including them throughtheir access to the basket full of underwear

LOS AÑOS LOCOS / THE ROARING TWENTIES

During the prosperous 1920s, the prototype of what today is known as female beauty was born. The huge influence of photography and the movies designed a young, white, blond and slim woman, who was amongst other things also conceded the right to be happy.

CIEMPIÉS / CENTIPEDE
2014

The centipide belongs to the phylum Arthropoda. 

An arthropod (from Greek arthro-, joint + podos, foot) is an invertebrate animal having an external skeleton, a segmented body, and jointed appendages. Their versatility has enabled them to become the most species-rich members of all ecological guilds in most environments. Arthropods are characterized by their jointed limbs and cuticle. The arthropod body plan consists of segments, each with a pair of appendages. The rigid cuticle inhibits growth, so arthropods replace it periodically by moulting. Their two nerve centers are by association, highly developed in social insects. It will govern in them the colony conduct and the gregariousness of it. (From English Wikipedia)

19 MUJERES Y UNA CAMA /
19 WOMEN AND ONE BED
2012

This is a photographic installation of a social installation. Only one bedroom, the common context for all of them. In one of the most ordinary neighborhoods, in which ordinary women have become more independent, but not without any less contradictions. The nude is not a stylistic resource; it focuses on their individuality, on the intimate being of each one of them, to which they have to find a place and meaning, within the limits of their reality.

LA FILA / THE LINE
2014

Women that obey us, defy us, and accuse us; women who we are all part of: sons, husbands, brothers, fathers, in debt and guilty, prisoners of their enigma, sharing their destiny; women that march in line under the law of consensus and look at us from there: Where are those women going?

THE BIG EGG
2014

George Orwell in his work ”1984” exposes the gray world of totalitarianism that makes people love the Big Brother above all. The Big Egg is the other side of the flag they defend, the real conditions of existence and survival; both allegories lead us to the contradiction of any political system, the attempted solution through the engineering of consensus and its effects on the man-mass.
