In this series I was interested in those objects that possess certain simplicity. I intended to show objects within an imaginary formal context to make them seem more sophisticated. They lose their functionality and in turn become more aesthetic. I try to abstract these objects from their own reality.
This series of photographies i an elegy to superficiality and pretence: the importance of appearence. All objects have a symbolic and fictional value, and they adapt to different backgrounds. The idea is to create a delusion that reaches an aesthetic beuty and surpasses the trivial reality of things.
Some viewers have stressed that this series says something about my gender and social status. It was not my actual aim. I was aware of the fact that my inspiration was coming from my immediate environment –home, family, friends, tv and consumption—. I understand that it is very difficult to separate these pictures completely from their original meaning. In the end, whether for rejection, acceptation or assimilation, we al interpret things around us in a wey that suits us best.
