My work is generated from reflections and research on domestic collectionism, and ethnographic, museum, ritual, heritage, memorial and fictional aspects intrinsic to the practice or act of collecting. I am interested in rescuing / addressing the symbolic values that are established between the collector and his collection, which I conceptually call: “secular relicarization.” That is, look for an object, find it, assign it a place within the collection, own it and treasure it. Treasure it not for a material value, but for what it symbolizes for the one who collects, who sees unfolding through the object, his memories and the vast territory of memory.
I value the collectivism from the displacements, diffraction, variations and innumerable particularities that I observe manifest / inhabit in practice. From the variations of the act of collecting, I move towards nature (endemic flora and fauna) and towards our popular mythical universe because it constitutes a playful / lucid space, of identity and collective treasuring. I set up large bodies of work.
In my projects, I develop the interdisciplinary language of the MINIATURE DIORAMA. Also, I inquire into sculptural ceramics, painting and illustration, dies and installation.
