About

This object is directly inspired by the ultraviolet light bug zappers that attracts and kills insects. The ultraviolet lighting element has been replaced by the word "Desire" in neon. It about how we can be vulnerable and a victim of our own desires. My practice is mainly sculpture, installation and public intervention. Space and place are very important in my work , both in the creative process in the work itself . Integration instead allows me to cross my limits and through different contexts of creation and his inspiring constraints. Questioning our desires and cravings often futile , it is with a touch of irony and humor that I question our behavior and reactions to different situations of helplessness and vulnerability. This loss of control often cause an emotional disorder and a series of contradictory feelings. However, my work and try to get the viewer to confront similar dispositions . In doing so, I create anomalies, discontinuities, destabilize , that surprise and tries to bring the visitor to stop and wonder about these irregularities. These extravagances , these fantasies are trying to bring the viewer in situations of doubt and mystery thus forcing together of items that would normally incompatible.
