I examine the static reputation of sculpture referencing primitive artifacts, games and toys to provide an exchange of ideas, a subtle conversation between sculpture and performance.
I have come to the realization that what I find most enticing about working in mixed media is its ability to transform our material connotations into a new poetic language. Like an alchemist, I seek to create an interesting courtship between ideas, a game that is both vast and exciting.
I am a Mexican artist living in the United Kingdom, and so as a result of a transient lifestyle I have been led to re-evaluate and reflect on my position, both as an individual and as an artist. To do this I have set about on a succession of playful studies, which build upon the associations between the unpredictable nature of the objects I use and the method in which I choose to animate them.
I am concerned with the static reputation of sculpture, and so look at primitive artifacts, games and toys to explore this. I alter their mechanization and form to change their functionality and question their practicality or shift their purpose. Through video, my work aims to convey a subtle conversation between performance and sculpture, suggestive of time and motion, without a conventional narrative.
