Dolus Maria Vazquez Castel


From April 3rd to May 12th, during 40 days, I wore on me, in a small pouch in canvas under my clothes, the printed image of a photograph of my grandfather taken between his death and his burial. All this time I kept the bag on me (I slept with it, I showered with it, etc.). I only took out the image to scan it from time to time, noticing a sharp deterioration of its condition every time. The idea of this work is to materialize, in some way, the mourning: the fact that we think of the missing person regularly, and how this thought stays with us and, even if it is often put aside to be able to live (we are not going to spend all day crying), from time to time is remembered and sometimes we even give ourselves the time feel what this absence does inside us.
