The relationship between life and space: the house (home) is our reference in the cosmos, the point from which to depart and arrive. And 'protection, security, warmth, affection, and every living thing seeks refuge in our homes, in their own reality. Empty snail shells testify to the passage of life (life), highlighting the unexpected absence through the "gaps" that exist in their cavities. They look like abandoned houses filled only with memories.
The plastic bag amplifies the concept: it is also a container and then home, inside of which sorts of objects have been welcomed and from which they left.
The relationship between content and container, the environment and life becomes the essence of the work. No life is possible without a place that can accommodate and protect. Snails become emblematic symbol of this relationship: my home is my life.
"My Home My Life ...."
