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.
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.
