(Work in progress)
This is a multimedia installation that involves video, photography, painting and graphics.
I'm trying to reflect on this idea of the modern man, what it really means to be a man “a macho” in this time, something maybe not very different that other times. I'm trying to make this series of videos and pictures where I try to represent this model of a man.
I like to play with this contemporary narrative of the sophisticated, successful and reliable man. A modern man that is easy to identify thanks to his aesthetic elegance, his clothes, a kind of his new skin, or maybe it is just a costume.
I am interested in the irony of all these adult fantasies that are, in a way, modern economical fairytales such as success, wealth, power and happiness and how the purpose of life seems like a spiral of conquering these elements.
