A journey through the waters of the unconscious.

The three versions of (M)Other Sea: the Artist’s book, the video creation and the small hardcover book.

The (M)Other Sea trilogy began in 2007 with a single Artist’s book: 80 x 50 x 5cm. After several years working on the Magma series (see here), where the emphasis was placed on matter and chance, I felt the need to create a work that could suggest an evolutionary process. A few years later, I decided to delve into this inner journey, creating two complementary projects. A video creation presented for the first time at the Collblanc Gallery in Castellón in May 2010, with a soundtrack from the renown musician and composer Tere Nuñez (https://www.xn--terenuez-i3a.com/) and a voiceover by Goya-winning actress Rosana Pastor (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosana_Pastor). The video won first prize ex-aequo in the Video creation category at the DONESenART First International Women and Cinema Festival (October 2011).

A printed hardcover book was then published in May 2012 by Manuscritos (Madrid), and was presented on the opening night of the TransOnírico exhibition at Rambleta Espai d’Art (Valencia).
