forbidden destination (the external body)06.06.2013

Malicious interpretation of the mask of humanity and its continuous strategy to keep quiet, inoffensive ghosts ad dragons so that they do not cause too much distruption during the waking hours. When we could take the risk to make it allied to deliver us in festive dances and magical moments of euphoria shared.
Contemporary heroes and myths with their burden of ideologies crumbles one after another, and we still keep them in a slow decline , in a continual readjustment made by compromises, made by extraordinary interventions to save them. We have built our relationship with some images, heroes, symbols and myths of this modern and post-modern epoch, they have invaded our social body, these creatures have colonized our mind, and occupied the world and our dreams, our collective imagination, as if they were manipulative and mystifying forces, constructed by ideologies, by the fashion of the time, by its culture and sensitive and its development models.
