Protección familiar

2004-2006

 

 

Familiar Protection Series aims to deconstruct the social institution of the family by exposing expectations and stereotypes operating within the family unit. The approach to the cultural subjectivity of Mexican social codes, passes by ironic, sometimes painful, observations which extend beyond national identity and the family.

 

       

 

Given the efficacy of the family in enforcing prescribed social roles, a personal sense of self seems to emerge equally from resistance and surrender to those roles. Familiar Protection, struggles with with the perception and representation of modern life through the preeminence of narratives, and the potential of formal and material experimentation on content.
