Elogio de lo desconocido-Hombre en caja / 2010

(Praise of the unknown – man in box)


It’s about unknowing. It’s about understanding und exploring the behavior of the Bilbao citizens. City where I was born. City which I don’t feel the same in as before. Being a voyeur. Doing a Safari of my own species.

Freesculptures / 2010

Project in collaboration with Benjamin Bernard. Free disposal of sculptures with possibility of movement.

ich unterdessen du (I, meanwhile, you) / 2009/2010

Two receipts. The same product. The same supermarket. Three months of difference. Six cents more. Like a processual way of work, I bought a packet of milk every week, this situation just gave to me, after a period of time, the chance to see that all is connected. A kind of diary. The events that happen in spite of what I do. So, if it is like this only in my area, what could be happening at the same time in yours and in relation with mine?



do it now / 2009

Wir Gallery, Berlin
The post-it as a pixel. “Do it now” as a contradiction of the main use of the post-it. The time spent, the paradox.
