“I don’t usually like to start on a personal note, but in this case, I have no choice. The project En busca de un muro (In Search of a Wall) as a whole (exhibition, book, and a series of related events), arose from a journey towards the unknown. This journey was not driven by curiosity, but by the despair of wanting to heal a loved one, while trying to change the intangible—metaphorically speaking—, such as time and space. It might seem like a cliché, but it is solely through tragedy and loss, by hitting rock bottom, that one develops that impulse, generally referred to as spiritual awakening.”
[…] En busca de un muro was conceived after these inexplicable events. This project’s starting point: the first chapter in a series of events and coincidences.
