The Metamorphosis of Oblivion
2016 to present
How can forgetfulness, the absence or the actual disappearance of memories, be metamorphosed?
In a historical period where one of the greatest concerns of our day is the increasing production of garbage and its destiny, this project aims to immortalize, through artistic creation, elements destined to be abandoned or whose destiny we no longer remember.
The method chosen for this production was to transform into protagonists the left-over materials, mostly authentic, used in other artistic projects such as cuts, molds and negatives. These spontaneous elements, born without purpose, have been rescued from their oblivion and transformed into brand new compositions through metamorphosis.
Some characteristic of their previous “lives” such as shapes, colors or textures have been maintained as proof of their physical preexistence.
