Intro
It is said that appearances deceive, not everything that shines is gold. I agree, I distrust my eyes, and I take advantage of this trap to play a branch is an artery, a piece of cloth a  skin, a tied bag a gland. This work belongs to the Skin Stories series,  where I pose a challenge: to deny the visual.

Invisible Anatomies

The strategy was to fantasize about the idea of organs as receptors of emotions and subjectivity. The exercise of imagining the morphology of what you do not see or do not touch, but that accompanies the body from the beginning. To give form and matter to the invisible. How do the ovaries feel? How does the intestine feel? How does the lung feel? We know that they exist when they give us problems, but what other things do they give us? Can there be emotions related to them?
 
I do not have the answers, but if there are any, I would like them to be incarnated in the works. With them, I propose that we cover ourselves with a new skin, reinvented organs, floating anatomies, proud to leave their place and try another role.
 
My practice in the workshop became a ritual that was gaining relevance along the process. The act of repeating gestures on materials, such as wrapping and squeezing clay, bandaging branches with threads and textile, letting that non-language come from my primitive being to speak without restraints. And it lasted until I decided to close the chapter entering the fossil stage by freezing objects on a plaster mold.
From those molds, I built all the imaginary of the Skin Stories series. I embarked on a fascinating journey embraced on amazement. And now I want to invite you to humanize the world by recognizing the language of these invisible anatomies.
