Belong is an artistic project made of 17 objects compiled photographically in a book. These objects form a compendium of possessions that accompany us throughout our lives and are presented in a chronological structure.
Each of the objects is identified with first and last names. Surnames are a fundamental part of the project since each possession collects the maximum number of them according to the Sosa Stradonitz* system. Writing, embroidering, sewing, carving, engraving and printing these long names has proved to be an absurd act. The comedy of the absurd contrasts with the formal nostalgic treatment of an existential reasoning. The original objects have been transformed into new objects endowed with a new reading. In this way. Belong is a project that invites us to ask ourselves how and why we label certain possessions.
The work visually shapes the weight of identity that is given to us and that we drag as an element of singularity and positioning of the individual inside the tribe / collective. The more we delve into the singularity, the closer we get to the whole. We are part of the whole.
