SOBRE MI

Nací en Ecuador, vivo y trabajo en Barcelona.

 

El tema central y característico de mi trabajo, es el eje de la conciencia y la temporalidad humana, poniendo énfasis en la piel como contenedor formal de la existencia.

 

Recorro el cuerpo como un mapa lleno de huellas, secretos e historias, y es el punto de partida hacia una fascinante búsqueda del interior humano. El humano que busco no tiene tiempo ni lugar exactos y está compuesto de muchas secuencias. Quiero mirarle a los ojos y preguntarle por qué su rara belleza me atrapa? ¿Qué caminos ha recorrido para encontrarse donde está? ¿Por qué se repite a sí mismo tan bello y torpe a la vez?.

 

Quiero imaginar que puedo quitar capa a capa cada piel, cada huella, y especular sobre la cantidad de láminas que recubren a cada ser.

ABOUT

I’m from Ecuador. I live and work in Barcelona.

 

The central theme and characteristic of my work, is the axis of consciousness and temporality human, emphasizing the skin as the formal container of existence.

 

I walk through the body as a map full of footprints, secrets and stories, and the skin is the starting point for a fascinating search of the human interior. The human beings that I’m searching for are timeless and placeless, and they are composed of many sequences. I want to look into their eyes and ask them why I am inspired by their rare beauty? What are the paths that they followed? Why are their history repeated on and on, equally beautiful and misguided?

 

I want to imagine that I can remove layer by layer each skin, each trace, and speculate on the number of sheets that cover each being.
