What is my work about?

My work is based mostly on the conception of reality as a construction that is constantly being recreated and where language becomes knowledge. In this way I bring up questions that are not overtly social or political, but that deal with the tendency of the human mind to create iconic and associative characters out of its surroundings and the effects of those associations on society. Thus, I develop a deconstruction of the icons and social codes that inhabit our daily lives, revisit their original meanings and create a new mythology around them. In this process I use contemporary and classic references to explore issues like desire and power dynamics.

Artist Statement

The construction of reality and the line that is often blurred between fiction and nonfiction are concepts which heavily inform my practice and are manifest through many traditions, notably: semiotics, representation, storytelling and issues surrounding public vs. private space.

My work often focuses on a general idea of representation and our choices regarding the mechanisms that offer that representation. In this way the “cinematographical mechanism” (Henri Bergson’s demonstration of how the intellect grasps reality), is being analyzed and deconstructed.

My recent project All of Us Want to Work Less, carried out this year at MACBA Museum, is a performance that manipulates the methodology of the rehearsal and reveals the mechanisms that exist behind a production. For this I used the iconic scene from Basic Instinct (1992) and created a monologue stating the position of the character through a text that questions the learning process and failure as a condition. Other references used in this piece were a recent manifesto, a historical revolt and different actions, including the making of a cement-based sculpture. The duration of the cement’s solidification timed the performance. This piece explores the connection between performance, happening and object making processes; it approaches the making of cement-based sculptures as a form of performance. At present I continue exploring these new subjects in a new piece premiering in September 2015.

All of Us Want to Work Less follows the work and experimentations I made in the fall of 2014, at a three-month residency at El Museo de Los Sures in collaboration with the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP). Its outcome was a series of works on desire and power: cement-based sculptures, silkscreens on latex and a video piece. The juxtaposition of the enticing material of the latex and the industrial cement was the fulcrum of the series of objects. Using these materials alongside the structure of the JEFF ikea chair, I  also addressed concepts of mass production and the symbolic construction of popular design. In the print, I’m a Writer, I used a fragment of the reconstructed dialogue from the movie Basic Instinct from the performance All of Us Want to Work Less. In this interrogation scene the minimal movement of crossing and uncrossing the legs subverts existing power dynamics. This topic, along with the gaze and desire, are recurrent in my practice- making this iconic scene a perfect material for analysis in my work.

Art, film, television, the performing arts and the Internet take the floor as work tools and objects for experimentation and analysis. I am interested in realities and in showing their limitations and ambiguities as truth, through analysis of their forms of representation. My interest not only lies in the story that upholds reality but in its recreations and its techniques for showing them or fictionalizing them.

In this direction THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE (2010-on going) is a multimedia project exploring the production of power and constructed situations while mixing performance, theater, film and live experience. It places a cast of performers within fictional and nonfictional parameters, using materials from iconic movie scripts, narratives from the actor’s own lives, and historical and recent events. While being filmed and situated in a conflict, four performers are directed towards the completion of a scene. The audience witnesses at the same time the performance and the making of a movie. The entire


process is being recorded and included in the ongoing film. The project is taking shape over a multi-year, multi-venue process: it began in 2010, produced by the Bilbao Festival of Contemporary Theater and Dance; in 2013-2014 it was carried out at Abrons Arts Center in NYC in two stages; and in the Fall 2015 it will be produced in Bogotá, Colombia.


THE MUSIC YOU WANT ME TO HEAR is a video created from the footage of the live audition/performance to cast the actors of THE PERILS OF OBEDIENCE iteration in NYC. The leitmotif of this video is an interview between the theater director and a performer at the casting that foregrounds the power and seduction involved in the exchange. The narrative force of what is unseen but still present serves as the mechanism of construction for this video piece.


Storytelling is another way I explore the concept of reality construction. I am interested in its myriad forms as well as humanity’s deep-rooted desire to create myths. My approach to the concept is both classic and contemporary; examples of storytelling and myth-making extend beyond the well known epics of ancient Greece to include current popular television programming. Signs and symbols, as the foundation for myth-making, are usually the starting point of my projects.


THE HISTORY OF THE FIST (2014) takes the symbol of the FIST as the main character of a new fiction. It creates a mythology between the known and the strange, the oral and the non-verbal. Foregrounded in this multimedia project is the FIST: a multilayered quotidian sign- while concepts of sexuality, violence and social revolutions are explored. Dia Felix is the narrator, the writer, as well as the archaeologist of the story. Historian and archivist Lincoln Cushing brings the nonfiction element through his studies on the icon of the fist from a political art perspective. The footage has been shot in different locations: a university 3D printing lab, natural caves and a strip club. THE HISTORY OF THE FIST was produced by the Museum of Contemporary Art of Belgrade, ARTIUM Museum and Salzburger Kunstverein. It took the form of a video installation that includes a video and a 3D printed sculpture on a pedestal.


In my projects, videos and performances, a non-linear narrative is created through deconstructed elements that are mainly absorbed from the language of pop culture, cinema and mass-media. WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL (2012-2013) draws its title from the chorus of British pop star Adele’s 2011 smash single, “Rolling In The Deep”. The work pays homage to the global appeal of Adele’s music while inquiring into the myth-like notion of total fulfillment. The videowork is set inside the Teatro Arriaga, an historic theater in my native Bilbao. A sequence of slow tracking shots, inspired by segments from Adele’s Live at the Royal Albert Hall concert video, capture an ornate interior, emptied of spectators yet intermittently haunted by the voices of two female poets responding to the lyrics in Adele’s hit song. In 2012 the project took the form of a site specific video installation at the Arriaga Theater and Plaza, fragmenting an audiovisual piece by placing the image inside and the audio outside. This form refers to the deconstruction of the cinematic apparatus while reflecting on the concepts of frustration, fulfillment and language. In 2013 I edited WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL as a mono-channel video to be shown out of its original context.


Utilizing an array of diverse media I explore the concepts of desire and power dynamics. Constructing signs and utilizing ubiquitous symbols, I am interested in language as thought, and how symbols that help us navigate our day to day lives are also responsible for informing and constructing our realities.
