Each of the works in "I Mistrust Stable Things", is part of a serie of similar and repetitive movements similar to the music compass, which subtly try to judge behaviors and stigmas received from other generations, in order to not dwell on the mistake making art a medium, but above all, an effort to name the unnameable.
WE ARE HUMANS
An installation composed of ceramic pieces that simulate swings supported by ropes at both ends to a high point with the specific intent of supporting the weight of a person. The forms vary, hands and arms trafficking between lassoed used in first aids, known as stretchers to move injured victims.
Useless function of objects, the qualities of materials and forms, set resistance against fragility, opposite values which form a single structure.
We are Humans, we are not perfect. Statement referring to the individual as an incomplete being, with mistakes.
THE EDERLY DISILLUSIONMENT
The installation is inspired by one of the most important symbols of post-war, the iconic representation of the desire of a society: A dove of Peace.
"The use of this symbol of peace intensified especially in the twentieth century. One of the most responsible for the dove with an olive branch recognized as a symbol of peace was the artist Pablo Picasso, who made series of drawings of doves. One of them served for a poster of the World Peace Congress in 1949, after the Second World War".
In a country like Colombia, The Ederly Disillusionment represents this symbol with disenchantment, a kind of weariness proper of who cant sees the arrival of peace for generations. That's when the symbol becomes almost ridiculous image, it becomes a mockery of the hope of a nation.
Trapped in a spell of patterns.
In Latin, the word Patronus refers to a spell or incantation that evokes a tutor or guardian. From this term rises Pattern (Patron), which meaning serves to recurring events or objects, sometimes referred as guidelines or models. Behavior patterns are rules of a specific nature that guide actions in specific circumstances or habitual ways of seeing and reacting to the environment.
Human behavior is acquired by social transmission. Ways of acting, thinking and feeling habits, beliefs, individual and collective responses obey to common - external rules, known and accepted by society. They are dynamic processes that are created through centuries producing what is known as the cultures of the peoples. However, any pattern or role model should be considered as relative since they depend on the different variations in their contexts.
