My worst nightmares


This group of works uses the collective imagination, images related to childhood and art as raw material.

Made with soil, rotten fruit, hair and ink, the drawings allude to instability and the dualism between innocence and monstrosity, questioning the idea of happiness and utopia in children’s imagery.

In the period of childhood the limits between fiction and reality are not yet defined. Their images and icons represent norms of behavior related to identity and social class. Children’s stories, games and songs, involve a subtle regulation through which children indirectly learn certain rules of social behavior, acquire specific roles that will later be reproduced in the world of adults.
