ADD TO WISHLIST 2021

Solo show at Tuesday to Friday ↗ , Valencia

It is very complicated to be an active artist with the actual life standards ruled by the neoliberal logics of hiperformance, self-exploitation, speculation and precariousness. But it is even harder to be an emergent artist. To produce art is a decision closer to an ascetic exercise of faith than to a professional one. Add to Wishlist is an ironic exercise of superstition where I invoke magic places to formulate those frustrated desires, which is to say, the basic lacks of a generation. Thus, the supernatural, the fabled and the supertitious traverses the exhibition.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS TIME? 2021

Shown at MAZE, group show curated by @Eladio Aguilera at ChezKit ↗, Paris

MAZE is a project based on the idea of the laberynth to generate a space that multiplies points of view and strolls. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?, displayed at the exhibition, reflects on the hostile conditions of cultural and creative employability, versus the increasing competitiveness of the sector. This work refers specifically to the paradoxical questions asked at jobs interviews for temporary contracts, such as where do you see yourself in the future.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT 2020

Shown at EDÉN, group show curated by CASANTILLÓN ↗ at Casa de Campo, Madrid

The sky is the limit is a site-specific project for free use that took place by the ending of the first COVID Lockdown at Casa de Campo. The kite, besides being a symbol for freedom –perhaps quite appropiate after a confinement, is inserted in corporate marketing tradition as promotionals gifts. The sky is the limit revises pharmaceutical merchandising and underlines illness privatization throughout irony.

ONLY ONE POINT ALLOWS PERFECT BALANCE 2020

Trying to pay a home and a studio rent requires a very stable balance. In Feng Shui and Zhen tradition, stability and inner calm comes from the communion with nature such as rocks, water o sound. Nonetheless, if you don't have the time to soothe your soul while fighting economic frustration, you can always buy a product device that promises equilibrium.

FAST&HAPPY 2.0 2020

Shown at CORRIENTE ALTERNA, CORRIENTE CONTINUA, group show curated by @Daniel Silvo at Galería Nueva ↗, Madrid

Fast&Happy 2.0 reflects on the velocity of the ways of contemporary living in the context of neoliberal production. The medicines that appear in Fast&Happy 2.0 substitute the presence, for instance, of a religious print or a protector saint; and function as a guiding icon that ensures the busy path of an always front-looking gaze.

BEDROOM PAINTINGS 2018-2019

For a while I couldn't afford a studio and I worked in my own bedroom, at scarcely one meter from my own bed. When coping with these conditions, the most efficient medium for me was painting. It allows to project complex ideas in a very reduced space. Also, its storage and price are relatively affordable. This body of work is a clear reflection of the contemporary precarious ways of production.
