She had to create a new series for a fair in which she was going to participate and while she was thinking about the theme, her grandmother died. At that moment she decided to pay tribute to her grandmother, creating a portrait of her grandmother through the things that reminded her of her. He also left a record of the phrases that she used to say to him and that characterised her, using them for the titles of the works. This kind of portrait is basically a tribute to all the grandmothers who have raised us as mothers. A very important figure in a society that rewards the lack of time, due among other things to long and inflexible working days. The use of objects as a form of portrait is interesting, as it is a way of making a particular and general portrait at the same time.

artista multidisciplinal. Statement: From my own experience of attachment towards my possessions , I started Investigate about the links develop people with the objects around us , the need to retain and limits between possession and obsession. I am interested in mainly the limit between what is considered normal and diseased , reconsidering the parameters that define that things. From this personal experience , I was treating this issue in a more general way , focusing especially on everyday acts related to different forms and patterns of accumulation , from Conservation International as souvenirs to collectibles . I also interested in the spaces dedicated to the act of accumulating like The attics , storage rooms , cabinets, etc . The type of objects preserved there and how these objects behave in different spaces . The attachment, Accumulation , Vacuum Fear , Obsession and memory are key words in my work . Partiendo de mi propia experiencia de apego hacia mis posesiones, empecé a investigar sobre los vínculos que desarrollamos las personas con los objetos que nos rodean, sobre la necesidad de retener y los límites entre la posesión y la obsesión, interesándome sobre todo el límite establecido entre lo que se considera normal y lo enfermizo y replanteándome los parámetros que delimitan una cosa de la otra. A partir de esta experiencia personal, fui tratando el tema de una forma más general, centrándome sobre todo en actos cotidianos relacionados con diferentes formas y motivos de acumulación, desde la conservación de recuerdos hasta otros como el coleccionismo. También me interesan los espacios dedicados al acto de acumular como las buhardillas, trasteros, vitrinas ,etc. el tipo de objetos que ahí se conservan y como se comportan los objetos en los diferentes espacios. El apego, la acumulación, el miedo al vacío, la obsesión y la memoria, son palabras claves de mi trabajo.
