Paula Valdeón Lemus Spanish, b. 1992

Overview

The gaze implies an unconscious touch

"My work explores themes related to ordinary life and inhabiting: everything that has to do with architectural bodies and objects that construct relationships, experiences and behaviours. All my projects are conditioned by instability and the inability to access or maintain the consolidated - non-precarious - space in which to acquire the conditions for the construction of different privacy; the memory traversed in the spaces, their remains, previously inhabited, are the material that make up my grammar".

I began the practice as something equivalent to an exercise in longing and a vain search for a place in which to put down roots, which led me to my current concern for the materiality of such places. I choose to analyse these spaces and times through the constructions they contain, their history (tiles, archaeological tastings, paintings, forms) and what the industrialised decorative designs reflect. In this way, I invite a more complex and less banal reflection on their appearance. Specifically, my focus is to create entities that contain the memory and affections of the materials used in the practice of inhabiting domestic spaces, intervening in the space from a plastic and sensitive experience.
