Heritages for Isabel

 

While I was thinking about what I wanted to do for an art fair in which I was going to participate, my iaia passed away and I decided to pay a tribute to her through a series of pieces that I titled “Herencias para Isabel”.

The set of pieces makes up a portrait of my grandmother through the objects in her house that most reminded me of her and the phrases that she used to tell me the most, which I have used as the title of the works.

This series is a tribute to my iaia in particular, but also a tribute to all the grandmothers and their great work within the family.

Those of us who are the children of working parents have had them as a second mother, their role is fundamental in parenting and the help they give parents is worthy of recognition.

Heritage

 

Someone is conscious of a change when they face the same object or situation and their reaction is different.

 

One day, I was visiting my grandma, and i found out once again with one of those little porcelain figures that everyones grandma would have at their house. I’ve always found them quite ugly, and i never understood the reason for them, neither in which moment people found them in any way appealing. But in that exact moment my perception of them changed and suddenly i discovered myself appreciating them differently.

 

“HERITAGE” it consists on a series of frames, where i represent my grandma’s porcelain figures through a new look, it’s called maturity. In these pieces grows a universe through a subtle juxtaposition of different languages and iconographic elements, in which the objects are used as fetish to build up the meaning of life and whats lived.

“FOLDER” is the representation of adolescence, that moment where we establish who we are and to which tribe we belong to through customizing / decorating our folders. Collage of images, drawings and quotes through we represent ourselves, putting us in a box.

“VHS” is a project that, like “the collection” and “fascicles”, are artworks that comes from an theoretic/practice investigation in relation to collecting and the link that a collector have to their acquisitions. It a way of accumulating, it’s differenced by organization and repetition.
In VHS we find a collection that directly or indirectly we all have had in our lives. In this project i focus on the re-recordable VHS, in which we find the “second collection” of memories. They containers of memories, moments; from things we record on TV, moments of our lives…

The stigma of the unemployed

 

We come from a time when we believed that with our training we would get what we wanted. We had invested in careers, languages, unpaid internships. But quickly, our dream vanishes, the negatives begin when it comes to finding work. That curriculum that seemed so complete now seems full of useless things. You do more courses and you lock yourself in your study, you have to invest all your time in the search for a job, everything else is wasting time and money. Every time you are more isolated, you no longer feel connected to the university, much less to the working world and suddenly, without realizing it, you have gone from being a person full of hopes, ideas and energy, to becoming an isolated being , insecure and without strength to prove what you were worth before, a bug.
