The Skin

by Jaime de la Jara

The Skin can be read as a set of independent works which, together, build a very particular scene, acting the works as pieces of a puzzle. One can see that all the works that are part of this exhibition come from the interest I have in the elements that change; or which are subjected of a transformation with the time passing by; or which are able, by themselves, to reflect it some way.
On several occasions in my work I have conducted my research around the “Time” – from different points of view, but understanding it always as an element that causes changes in our physical reality or in our memory. Always fixing my attention on its action on the elements, especially on the overlooked objects, those that are around us without much importance given to them. This time, my research led me to a secondary concept, which is directly related with the “Time” and “Space” – the “Absence”. Concept that, to me, is very important nowadays. Since, currently, after living in abundance, many suffer from the absence of what they no longer have. Now we are well aware that we have lost something and, thus, we can better understand this concept.
