Director Statement

We have always worked individually in painting, engraving, sculpture, drawing, installation ..., but since 2009 we video art together.
We are interested in the content and technical experimentation of language.
With the video art we reflect on today's life, the inequality of classes and genres, the crying for the destruction of Nature, human manifestations and themes such as the dance of life, sleep, time, madness and death.
For this we experiment with images that we shoot of the most magical and fleeting reality. And then we recover for each video. We do not copy files from the internet.
Unlikely figures and paradoxical spaces appear, as the different times come together, playing with the sizes, multiplications and transparencies, the overruns of the planes or the transpositions.
 The soundtrack is usually the guide that structures the rhythm and emotionality of real and mental images, which flow mixed with drawings, spaces, models, installations, and poetry.
