The Sculptures of Memory

The covid-19 pandemic in 2020 only showed something that we deny at all times in our lives, the idea that we are in control of our decisions and that we dominate them.

The Sculptures of Memory project deals with a contemporary archeology based on images produced in an active waiting process that, during the lockdown and the reopening period of the city of Madrid, revealed the human presence through its remains. In parallel, this archeology uses a set of chronicles that were written by the author during confinement. In this way, it seeks to go beyond mere architectural documents, clothing and everything that involves the urban environment. We were forced to create new sculptures, and our own bodies were transformed in unforeseen ways to control the virus, thus reinforcing the illusion of control over decisions, something that is materialized in the exhibition proposal.
