Uprooted            

 

Uprooted is a condition that characterizes cultural, psychological and even physical otherness, a kind of detachment that shapes personality, behavior and appearance of people that are different. By the other hand otherness creates shelters, spaces of solidarity with people sharing the same kind of exile, an ambivalent environment of belonging and alienation.

 

The uprooted trees series tries to find a minimalistic metaphor, personal but universal, a metaphor that expresses the ambivalence implicit in the difficulties of alienation and the comfort that they are other people in similar situations, the feeling that there is a present brotherhood.
