Jon Gorospe

Environments




A system of beacons for the waste.

From the garbage bag to the landfill, we are before a tenacious process of concealment. We hide what we do not assume, we hide the obscenity of decrepitude and death, we conceal what, on the other side, continues with its process of putrefaction. As in the culmination of an optical trick, we witness the disappearance of the traumatic as camouflage, swiping, or glaze.

In the images we see the dark abyss that protects us from the filth. Something, on the contrary, will not leave us.
