New times, new gods / Colective suicide I

Collective Suicide I, 38 x 14 x 3.5 cm, High Temperature Ceramic and Copper, 20013

The work is a visual metaphor of the incessant process of destruction and reconstruction of society. Collective suicide symbolizes the persistence of a community that coexists, grows, celebrates and destroys itself through the action and interdependence of those who make it up.


Through abstract shapes that recreate the appearance of the rockets known as “palomas” -triangles made on paper, which contain gunpowder in their interior- and their position in rows embedded in a thick ceramic plate, the role of an individual as a factor of change in a society is represented: each one has the power to modify, recreate, distort and even partially destroy it, but at the same time the individual himself is modified in the process.
