“Under this mask is another mask. I will never finish lifting these faces” Claude Cahun
The symbolism with the posters on the streets is what attracted me to use these materials. We can see how they get pasted one of top of each other every time there is a new one. The most current is on top, but below we can appreciate there were others. Peeling off the layers I can see what was below, just as when we get to know someone, slowly we get to “see” more. They all work together, shaping us, making us what we are.
The passing of time has changed the texture and color of the posters just as time fades, changes events or gives us more perspective.
During my process I scratch the surfaces and discover “new worlds” I feel how the piece is opening to me. All experiences are observed, respected and given a space to be.
The use of these materials that normally are discarded is essential to me. I see in them the parallelism with experiences that are forgotten or hidden. Things that we prefer to forget, discard.
