"It is a cyclical journey. I talk about my family and the one that biologically is not, but that I consider as such. I explore the roles we play in our emotional relationships, as well as the shelter and support we find in them. I reflect on memory, the similarity in our patterns of behavior and what we reflect on the other. Also about the passage of time, the dreams and experiences that build our identity.
B to B began with a portrait of my grandfather that my grandmother kept in her wallet, whose dedication reads like this: "When you are sad, look at it and think that I am with you". In that sense, the power that encloses an image to evoke memories allows me to explore my own identity. And in this exploration the horse, which I consider to be a member of my family, serves as a bridge between the different characters in the project, symbolizing the vital force between our unconscious desires that we master and our own human nature."
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition B to B at Galería Kursala, Universidad de Cádiz.

I fantasized the world as a sleeping beast, who was gigantic, bizarre, and quiet. I was able to imagine it as my secret friend, regardless of its wishes. The silence of the beast was an umbrella, shielding...
Text chosen by the publisher to introduce this work : "We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made...
