“I always speak the truth. Not the whole truth, because there's no way, to say it all. Saying it all is literally impossible: words fail. Yet it's through this very impossibility that the truth holds onto the real.”

Jacques Lacan

Lacan claims that the real is ‘impossible to imagine’ (in contrast to the imaginary and symbolic functions of the body)

Im interested in the definition and understanding about body?

 what does mean body? how we can build or defragment a body?

For this exhibition I want  to represent how forcefully the body can be used to address social injustice, sexism, aggression, violence and disease.

I don't pretend or want to use the traditional realistic approaches to the body. But my own personal way to express the presence, absence and isolation of the body in a physical and philosophical way

Taking flowers as main inspiration in symbols and shape, I decided to create jewellery objects that are crudely formed and built furiously.

The bodies (flowers) becomes abstract images, that are builded of small fragments representing different expressions of mental and physical state.

Differents textures, different parts, some hairy, some smooth, others heavily creased like wounds.

Each of them tell a story randomly arranged in my own interpretation of flower as cultural, social and religious symbol
