FAUNA

Fauna is an intimate project, it was born when I moved to live in a distant city.

 

The figures in Fauna are interpretations of those small objects that one sees when closing his eyes and when the eyelids are arranged as a pink flesh background. I wanted to try like this, how we try to find familiarity in everything we perceive, especially in new places where everything seems unknown.

 

That familiarization as an indispensable adaptation strategy.

I close my eyes to avoid the fear of something new, an evasion where I only trust the imaginary figures that live on my eyelids.

I open my eyes again to see that in these unknown places, there are remnants of those figures and therefore, the places become familiar.
