Memories of the Concentration Camp
I could say that my work is based on a search, on exploration. Of styles, forms and meanings. It is a constant internal and external excavation, aesthetically and conceptually. In this series based on memory I have excavated both my memories and the collective memory, in particular how some events of the past have been substituted or erased from the collective memory. Specifically on a series of concentration camps located in the south of Spain that seem not to have existed, creating a silence that, I personally think, has contributed to the resurgence of the extreme right. These camps housed the slave labour that built the canal of the prisoners, a canal in the lower Guadalquivir of about 160 km, a canal of which many do not know its history, they only perceive its lack of memory.
