|1942 Barcelona, Spain. Lives in New York.|
Series of eleven serigraphs.
Photographic images taken from various media, greatly enlarged and brought into the anonymous and the archetypical of the repeating detail: the microphone as symbol of power, prosthesis of authority.
The video "Portrait" (6 minutes) presents the portrait of a speaker in front of the microphone in an extremely slow fashion and with a close-up reduced to the gesturing of the hands.
