My art work and The “The Memory bridge” project developed since 1996, is renowned and become has become a benchmark in the link between art and memory. Puente de la Memoria/ A memory bridge ARTE-CUERPO Y MEMORIA Art-Body and Memory My art work to build a bridge of memory, to illuminate the present. Mirrow of soul, mirrow of the time. The landscape like a witness, like the memory territory , With my tools, the drawings, my paintings, the photos, and the poetry, living together in my instalations. The words like a testimony, my voice coming from the south, from the “Río de la Plata",from Argentina. The memory is like the blood of the time, and we are looking for the DNA of the broken dreams. A map of images, places and sounds, form the pass emerging into the present. The landscape, like a body with the wounds tatoo.
