• in their Dark Places

    At the antipodes of the project EstrangeR, which focused on the displacement and the processes of dissociation and alienation, the series in their Dark Places is a homage to everyday people who have offered me human shelter. A kind of sanctuary with appropriated though inverted pictorial values of the typical Orthodox religious paintings, including the replacement of the "sacred article" for an object that the portrayed would save from their homes in case of expulsion and urgent evacuation. A fictional context was created as a reflection on the new reality of the "desahucios" in contemporary Spain, the official evictions due to bank debts, a kind of simulation where People grasp the essential, trying to stand still inside their own Dark Places.
