cuerpo y ropa (body and clothes)

2014 - 2016

My process of creation begins with walking and looking, especially the clothes people are wearing. Clothes are full of symbols: icons that human beings has been using for hundreds of years. I reflect on how, through them, we try to build a solid identity, even though they represent a product of massification.

My sculptures are carved in linden wood. They show a human being with an apathetic face and a hieratic posture. People are semi-naked, not knowing if they are dressing or undressing. They are looking in an imaginary mirror. They are having doubts about what to do, who to be. Cloths are like a skin that we put on and off every day.
