Mommy Says …

Mommy Says … is a series in which I recreated the facades of churches, houses and buildings that drew my attention because of the threatening way they are constructed. I made models of some facades with the greatest detail possible and highlighted elements that I found disturbing, such as barbed wires, bricks or broken bottles. Everything arose from a childhood memory.
A facade is something that is neither public nor private: it is the limitation of both. In the more inhabited places such as cities, they manifest a social anxiety that consists of the need for constant reaffirmation of what is public and what is private. This in turn covers the statements known-alien, reliable-suspicious, I and the other person – the other person who is also me, in the eyes of someone else. A daily life in which the sense of security requires the presence of fear.

Some of the pieces participated in the exhibition "Urbanismos Transitorios" (transitory urbanisms) curated by Widy Ortiz. Centro Colombo Americano in Bogotá Colombia 2013.
