Portents of our own, 2015. Installation. Dimensions variable. Hand-sewn banners (hammoc and felt), posters and found timber, fragments of tiles, esoteric items.
An installation in which we find fictional spells, -almost like verbal and objectual Dadaist poems,- where chance plays an important role and spells materialize in two forms: a collection of posters, and a series of tapestries made with hammock fabric. Apart from the oral knowledge -sayings and proverbs- objetcs do play a fundamental role in the project. As part of beliefs and superstitions, objects such as votive offerings or talismans are associated to offerings and spells. By invocating an action, they bring negative or positive consequences / predispositions to the time to come. This type of magic objects embodies the power of words and contains the power of beliefs but as well of a certain magical thinking.With this visual game of words, objects and the idea of the magical, dislocated and fictional imagery, the project explores how what was, isn’t any longer and what is, won’t keep being.
