PRESENTATION

MOTHER WHO AM I?, is an unanswered question. A question asked by the artist to his mother who suffers from Alzheimer's, which returns unanswered and hurts in the very center of himself. Mother,who am I ?, is a question that the artist now asks himself.

The three videos of the video-installation are the result of this question never fully answered by anyone.

Artist Manolo Gómez asked me to make a video installation that would be my look at his mother's illness. I did not want to enter into this intimate relationship, and I proposed to him that he be the object and protagonist of my work within his exhibition. I asked him to let me look at him for a while, to let me explore his pain and exhaustion, let me dress him, close him into black space, and let us focus on what is most intimate and most painful, fearless, as if we were entering a strange dream, a dream of which it is time to wake up.
