The need of conducting this project is the answer to the inner concerns of a society that needs to look inside to outline itself as a human being continuously since, in some way, a unique global memory is expected to be built excluding any sign of hallmark. For this reason, individual memory is defended as a way to not forget who we are or who we have been through the different stages of our lives.
To start this “bergsoniano” trip, we need a perception of the present since it will be from the present that our memories will take shape. As the shadow next to a body, we will become aware of the strong bonds between present and past.
To build the concept of individual memory, we have used photographs belonging to the past in which the characters who appear have been deprived of their physical body and have become shadows. These shadows have been superimposed to create different levels of stratums that offer a new time dimension to the painting. The farthest stratum will represent those people who died or disappeared from our lives, whereas the nearest stratum is formed by those people who remain beside us. Specifically, the characters of this stratum have been represented plastically by overlapping cutout dresses stuck on the surface of the paper, as a way of not wanting to relinquish that past, but with the contradiction of not containing memories because, on many occasions, it causes pain.
This duality memory-forgetfulness will mark all the works which will always sail between being remembered or being forgotten.
