There is a time for everything, a time to go and to come back and to stay. A time when the whole life seems so unhurried but in which every instant can bring you to new suggestions and fascinating ones. This is how my time in the old water tower has been—a very isolated period but productive as well. Every day has been an endless encounter with myself. It has been during this period when I have been able to engender Mielle, the project displayed in the exhibition.
Mielle is made in silence, from the emotions and feelings that sometimes we cannot explain, about the concrete situations build up in abstract ones. I have been tearing myself to pieces and creating every single feeling that composes the entire project. I have tried to hollow out my cores to hear louder my inner voices, my laments and my desires, my sorrows and my hopes. In this way, I have been creating each feeling through different materials such as paint, photography or ready-made objects.
Now, I invite you to the place I am living in as a metaphor. I open the doors of my home as I open myself after twenty-three months of silence. At the same time, it means to lock a door where I have been captured until now—a new origin from where to start living again.
This is Mielle, the voice of my insides.
Colours for blind people.
Fragments of me.
My only companion.
