The pieces that make up the Contrapeso series are part of my Cefalea thesis project, which I will be presenting next year as a final graduation project at the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts.

This set of works discusses the representation of the human head as a formal and symbolic element, which allows me to approach birth and death as two fundamental moments of the “head” element in its germinal and dissolving state respectively. It appeals to the cranial bone structure, as a state of concentration of the individual in training, or of what was; but where they lie a prehistoric, transgenerational or post-historical memory that transcends their own existence.
