WOW Mexico
Curatorial statement:
We are all in search of something, material or immaterial, the need to express ourselves to question or
convey a sensation at the moment, a sound, a feeling, an emptiness, memories either through.
The memory and the body or simply appropriating something that you love and turning it into something.

Narké / 2015 / 3:15 / México
Starting from narcolepsy and hypnagogic and hypnopompic imagery, I experiment with body action, chance
and wandering as a possibility esthetic.
The actions are carried out according to my requests, seeking to bring to the limit of their physical
capacities a body that does not belong to me, Where images and sounds are captured according to my
instincts.

Postdata / 2016 / 7:00 / México
Photography as a device that activates the memory and the memory we have of absent.
Is an exercise of re appropriation of portraits of people who have disappeared and through photography
and text evokes his presence.
