Country of residence




Starting from the concept of the South Korean philosopher Byung-Chul Han¹, in which “rituals transform being-in-the-world into being-at-home” and that the habitual concept of “throwing away” is confronted with the reality that ” there is no outside”, the works presented here reflect my research on the relationship between everyday consumption and the rituals and habits that we bring with us in our cultures, creations and daily rituals. In this sense, the materials limitations are resources for carrying out the works that they confront daily consumption for the execution of works. Thus, the time of consumption becomes raw material and the work, the materialization of time.
Time, as an ethereal element, can also give rise to fables in which parallel universes can talk to the present, past and future through magical interpretations where spatial and temporal distances can be doubled.
