Project
2017—August
The title of this project refers to the Greek origin of the word horoscope, which is the person who contemplates time. The horoscope interests me not only because it is a manifestation of various themes that have been present throughout my work, such as destiny and time, but also because of its direct relationship with literature and the formulas of writing. It is also a traditional graphic piece that has appeared in the press since the beginning of modernity and a reflection on how we, as human beings, construct our thinking. On the one hand, based on beliefs and ideologies, which is the result of a passionate and emotional living, and on the other, thanks to an analytical and rational capacity. From these thoughts and ideas, as well as a collection of all the horoscopes of the Taurus sign (2009), I did three works: 365 days (a painting), 12 months (a series of photographs of writers accompanied by manuscripts drawn in pencil) and 52 weeks (a video with subtitles made out of the horoscope). Each one of these works corresponds to a different analysis of writing and its mental process. The backdrop, or what I like to imagine, is that behind all of this is the monotonous and melancholic life of a "ghostwriter".
