Vision of art
1. Choose a work that represents you, describe it in relation to its format and materiality, its relation with time and space, its style and theme; detail its production process.
At this moment, all my energy is focus on the management of Jardín Oculto and its curatorial project. I’m very romantic, I believe in making art with life, an art to live, not to exhibit exclusively.
Because of these, the project of Jardín Oculto, the work I develop in my studio, my curatorial practices and my work as a teacher are artistic experiences that I undertake in different formats and all of them are necessary to me.
It is an unavoidable impulse. When I’m fascinated with some work, I’m so intensively happy that I like to share the experience with others.
On the other hand, I enjoy my own artworks while they are on process. All of them, have a lot of anecdotes from my personal story and could feed the “examples’ sections” from several psychology books.
2. In general terms, how would you suggest to approach your work?
I dare to suggest seeing the work through the set up, the choices, and those kind of elements.
After all, I like to be surprised with the possible feedbacks.
3. In reference to your work and your position in the national and international art fields, what tradition do you recognize yourself in? Who are your contemporary referents? What artists of previous generations are of interest to you?
Jardín Oculto’s profile is a frame that privileges emerging art, and obviously, I´m interested and passionate about all the artists in the project. Besides this, the range is too broad… Ana Mendieta, Thomas Demand, Hélio Oiticica, Douglas Gordon, Paul McCarty, Mathew Barney, Luc Tuymans… Berni, González Perrín, the Neo-Figuration group, Marta Minujín, Pablo Suárez, Pombo, Joglar, Peisajovich, Schirilo, Liliana Maresca… a never-ending list!
It varies according to the day, punk rock, bossa nova, flamenco, zamba and chacareras… but I think the base is mainly an agitated / fast rhythm.
4. Choose works or exhibitions from the last ten or fifteen years which in your opinion were very significant and explain why
