Alicia Moneva ; The concept of what is human

The way of working in series is very characteristic of this photographer. Also the sum of many photographies in the alone one, as a counterfoil of stills that they summarize the time and the space in an alone instant.

All the photographic series of the author, revolve around the concept of what is human, approaching as an individual or as part of a collective identity in different ways. We always propose questions, leave roads open to reflection.

The way of working in series is very characteristic of this photographer. Also the sum of many photographies in the alone one, as a counterfoil of stills that they summarize the time and the space in an alone instant. Probably for this motive, always he accompanies to his series with small pieces of video, “videObras”, since he likes to call them her.

His series always are opened for the incorporation of new photographies, as if it never wanted to give finished any of the topics that worry him. His interest for the sciences in general, the psychology and the philosophy, they contribute always another point of view, a new approach. They give him the opportunity to continue learning, to be alive.

His first approximation to the art went from the painting, with pictures to the oil more concretely. This determines the way in which it shows us his world, in which the shade is essential, almost so much as the light. Also in his way of composing and looking, it appreciates the great influence that had the architecture in his life. After ending his studies of Biological Sciences in the Complutensian University of Madrid, it worked of form continued in different studies of architecture. In them it realized planes to color of zenithal conference of the urban development interventions in the city.

In these first years the photography was a tool of work, but still not a vehicle of artistic expression. Later, with the analogical photography and the portrait, it got squarely in the photographic world and already without gone back.

The first photographic project was the unconscious series, in which, by means of tubs and waters of colors, it transmits his the primary thing, the gestation, the unconscious one. The sensations like colors, messages coded in the maps of the conscious reality. Secret fingerprints that determine the behavior.

In the collective series addressed to the individual and their relationship with their environment. Forms of “dumping” as an individual are presented assuming social cloning, a manipulation of the nature, time and space of the subject. Speaks of freedom proposed by philosophers such as B. Spinoza.

In the series “about the disease,” reflects on the memory and identity. What is the nature of the human being, and the role of the memories in the construction of identity. We see people in places impossible, surrounded by Dim lights that disappear slowly,

like blurry memories which make it difficult to recognize. This series also refers others pain, tempted to look away in a society very concerned with perfection.

In the ” unconscious social ” series the social thought appears as link of union, of sum. To be fixed in the unconscious human being, to understand that it is a common factor, it forms a of dealing, of recognizing ourselves in other one, something essential in a society healthy.

The series ” goods 2.0″ refers to the purely mercantile value that is awarded to the human being. It is invited to the reflection of the concept of being a human being I dress as a product, which consumes and is consumable. This human quality gives step, by means of a numerical assignment – probabilística, to the objetivación of the individual, qualifying to a company of consumption, the calculation and the transformation of the population in physical and virtual goods. A perverse game of deshumanización.[Official Website]
