Camille, Ingrid, Emma, Iñaqui, Santiago and Nerea were created as alternate versions of myself. Directly connected to my experience and how I relate to places. The works revolves around the concepts of intimacy, privacy and domestic spaces. If I can doubt my identity I will do so. It is comic to live both trapped and free inside your own rules, I can make them, break them and at once disappear. I sit in this uncomfortable chair and talk to you in whispers, telling you about all the little things that make me. Are we made from the same? Willpower and imagination? Rules, lists and meticulous descriptions? Tell me if you would live where I once did. Would you be me, so I don’t have to? Talk to me, tell me all, I am dying to know.
