pilgrimages to nowhere
Federico García Lorca's writing of his suffering in the most insignificant spaces of New York City, makes me be an artist.
“Pilgrimage to nowhere, Milan”.
“Duomo in blue”
“Duomo in Purple”
“Pilgrimage to nowhere, NY”
Paths are the representation of the movement of someone through a place. In these digital prints two paths are shown, they both come from google maps data which gives to each user the possibility to see on the map where he or she has been. The ephemeral act of walking becomes information and is used by the artist to show his personal ways, exposing where he has been and when, he creates a series of pilgrimages which talk about how we understand maps, the movement of humans, and how we expose our information to be controlled.
Series of screenprints:
"2.02.2019 Milan: Garbagnate Milanese - Via Varese -Porta Garibladi - Restaurant Pizzeria Maruzzela - Istituto dei ciechi di Milano."
"2.01.2019 Madrid: Calle la Cañada - Av. Leganés Mcdonald´s - Calle Aliso, Aldea del Fresno."
Walking I found various forms of thinking, of people, groups and subgroups, forms of walking, of shouting and speaking, of looking and observing. Experiences in forms ... form ... yes, again form. The form over here the form over there. I love the form, I am excited about movement, I would like to be formed and not be silent.
Well, I was saying… the form in which I walked, in which I spoke of time, of the ugly sculpture in the museum square, the form lost me between avenues where I found questions and architects, tiles and the ground, terraces and sky, “cañas” and Malasaña, Aperol and Sara, my way.
Yes, I am that walking that speaking, conversing, criticizing, that looks and admires, drinks and dances, I am the “Reina Sofia”, “La Argumusa”, I am the perfect form of the ANTI-FORM, I am the movement, and today, I am not.
Maps have been used by humans to describe places, organize territories, borders, define paths, and understand where we live and how.
Today the big technology companies organize our daily life in different fields, and where we have been, is the information of their studies and control.
