“En Cenizas II / En Cendres II”, 2019. Video / 8′ mins / 4K / Color / Stereo / ProRes / without dialogue.
“Right now, without a doubt, people prefer image to thing, copy to original, representation to reality, appearance to being… For them, the only sacred thing is the illusion (the image), while the profane is the truth. Moreover, the sacred grows in your eyes as truth diminishes and illusion increases. The video “En Cenizas II” questions us about our social body, how today social controls have conquered our bodies and imposed authorized forms, uniform appearances, signs of status, culture, aesthetics, leading us to create an image of ourselves, according to what is socially required, but at the risk of denying our reality, our essence.
