Like a fish out of water
Talking to my mother
Another piece charge with irony presented at Centro de Arte La Regenta. Responding to an invitation to present my work as one of the Canary Islands artists living abroad I present this piece Like a Fish out of Water. In it I use the rituals of Carnaval to talk about the traditional, provincial and colonialistic situation of the islands and their need to renovate through the rite of the Carnaval which was considered my ancestors as the time where everything was told and expressed.
Talking to my mother was a project selected for the Yugoslavoan Biennial of Young Artist after one of its curated saw in Toronto the piece "Mit einem Wort" where I illustrated proverbs common to English, Spanish and Chinese. For this ocassion I did an installation of illustrated plates with proverbs common to serbs, croats and serbians. The piece had a perofrmance and public intervention too.
