"Ciencia Ficción", 2010 Series
Marina Núñez. “Sin Título” (Ciencia Ficción) ("Brotes"), 2010
Seires composed of 10 infographics printed wth pigmented inks on Gloss paper mounted on Dibond. 30 x 30 cm. Edition of 5 + 1 A.P.
Series of 10 infographics that show generic heads, like a mannequin, but with a flaming, saturated and hurting flesh color, that are deformed, flattened and burst into explosions that seem to be turned inside out, ceasing to represent the ideal beauty to show a grotesque, terrifying disfigurement,.
The explosions that transfigure these heads are the internal, outside forces to which they are submitted to. The process may suggest destruction, an apocalyptic ending, but also creation, energy consolidating into matter. In any case, the explosions that deform –of form— them do not seem to be controlled but random procedures. Perhaps one of them works, is viable or stable, or perhaps the happy ending is precisely the inconsistency, fluency, a process of constant change.
