This series is about the relegation - somewhere in the background - of the mother/father figures. Paradoxically, raising and educating are tasks as important as they are undervalued. These works aim to bring visibility to the silent and selfless task of transmitting generational values.
The pieces are inspired - in meaning and aesthetics - by a fraction of a domestic wall: walls are the surfaces that remain discreetly ornamental, resilient, witnessing quietly the process of childrearing, generation after generation. The hand-made drawings in these works depict the very first portraits of children in the history of photography (1850), where an adult -most likely the mother- holds the child and hides herself from the camera, coming across like a ghost. Thus, the protagonist becomes the fleeting element that refuses to go away, the remains of a generation that hides and, in turn, prevails.
