Statement

 

Javier Infantes understands creativity as a language of experimentation, as a method of investigation and acquisition of knowledge, all of this based on the freedom to create. He is interested in traveling towards our inner selves, towards what we are: thought, emotion, feeling, memory…

Moreover, he is attracted by our ability to generate intelligence, sensations, recollections…

“Perhaps we are what we remember…” "The recollections make us who we are" He says.
He sees art as a vehicle of knowledge and not a mere representation of what surrounds us.
