Jorge Manilla, 2022, Mexico / Belgium


I know that somewhere I have existed, that nobody knows and that possibly only memories of me will remain.
By making flat squares I emphasize my interest for gestural expresive work that I describe as agressive drawings.
Holes and scares forms are comming from uncontrolled movements methodically reinforced and treated in a delicate way as wunds, to became a piece of memories.
My pieces are abstractions that refer both to human creations and to those of the current world: using cardboard as a support and treating it as an organic material, scarifying it reveals forms that refer to something primitive. of actions that no longer exist, that will never be known if they happened but that will be remembered by the scars These forms were thought of as objects related to the body.
