Statement

My work refers to the city´s forgotten spaces, where an accumulation of materials and objects that have appropriated the corners between the concrete and the ground can be perceived. The manipulation of materials emulates the decadency of metal, and it forges a visual story about life in the city. Colour and texture become essential aspects of imitating the organic accumulation of urban life, allowing the pieces to express their surroundings and transmit various stories about the body with a similar effect to its source of inspiration.


About La Frontera Series
Migration is a global phenomenon exacerbated by the political borders in our world. People flee insecurity or wars looking for a better life but are confronted with the dangers of crossing the border like extreme temperatures, hunger, dehydration, and physical threats to their lives by other people.
Those who don't make it to the end are often forgotten and remain only as a record or numbers in statistics that measure the human remains found at the border, and it disconnects us from the human loss and suffering.
This information is what we read and receive in the media, yet the graphs do not mean anything to the families that lose children, fathers, and mothers, nor do they help us weight in the true anger, loss, and pain that it leaves behind.
I tried to represent these cold graphs whose number numbers do not convey the emotional weight that these families carry through their pain. This is represented through the weight of the piece and the composition of the bars by emulating a graph but making the emotional weight a physical reality to the wearer.
