Fanny Allié I



"My work shows traces of a fleeting moment, an ephemeral existence and most of all, a narrative that links us to each other in our daily life.
In my recent collage work, I tear apart and re-assemble pieces of found fabric, mixed media and newsprint images to create imaginary characters. This collection of small collaged figures are informed by my daily observation of people living on the New York City streets, the news and personal recollections.
A city is made by all the individuals who inhabit it; the ones that we see everyday and the invisible ones who merge with facades and sidewalks and who become the street itself. My practice is based on my own subjective experience of the city through the people I cross paths with, on a daily basis. Found materials is at the core of my practice: found paper, used fabric, strips of plastic or scraps of wall paint, fragments and little objects found on the street are used for the making of my characters which become creations and products of the city itself. My imaginary characters inspired by underground and unseen human figures often carry and develop alternative economies, in an urban context." Fanny Allié

Marta Aranda

 

Marta Aranda's sculptural project 'Second Skin' explores the importance of clothing as a method of communication and identity.
"This piece comes from the deep reflection about  the relationship between fashion, the human being, and his individuality. The meanings of the links that exist between human beings and clothing, the dependence generated between them, and the importance of this aspect of the human behavior, which defines us, represent us, and makes us able to communicate among ourselves."
