Hope Seems Fragile

HOPE SEEMS FRAGILE, 2012 – 300/250/50cm
Installation of 52 drawings, made in different papers. Different sizes, mixed techniques.
Hope seems fragile is an installation composed of several drawings, framed in passe-partout and attached to the wall by a wooden stick, allowing the work to have multiple depths and slopes. The installation starts in the floor, to rise along the wall.
The drawings refer to memory as an imaging system, related to the psyche and shaped by experiences unlived but taken from different mechanisms of knowledge as the school, media, popular traditions, commemorations or literature. Strange images are born, full of dragons, hybrid men, sacred trees and other elements drawn from popular beliefs and derived from personal and collective mythologies.
