Slavery of a shadow
Slavery of a shadow

Slavery of a shadow

A masked, censored character who uses art as a tool to propose ways of accessing his essence. The need to express oneself, dragging and transporting one's own story, tools, trying to represent what is real and what one is supposed to be.
The condition of the artist is accompanied by the soundscape, where the users themselves will be incorporated into this status and immersed in its reworking.
A poetic act perpetually in progress is that of the passage of a shadow that breaks the stifling patterns for those laboriously seeking the truth.
