In-dependências
In-Dependencies

O projeto de García abarca os 27 países da comunidade europeia. Suas paisagens urbanas explicitam os elementos arquitetônicos externos visíveis e comuns sobre os telhados. Cada cidade figura ummapa “diferente” que responde a modelos urbanísticos e sociológicos substancialmente distintos em cada uma das capitais europeias, e aponta para a homogeneização desse padrão entre aqueles que aí vivem. Uma visão da possível/impossível in-dependência pessoal na sociedade européia no século XXI e um mapa global das in-dependências na Europa.

My work is done on the basis of experimentation and fusion of disciplines and techniques around the world of the image. In recent projects (developed after an intense documentary work) I have focused my artistic creation in a rereading of the territory, accumulating meanings in images, such as layers, as a synthesis and reflection on what each picture shows and hides. Description of the series In-Dependencias Approximately 70% of the European population lives in countries that have had or have some kind of conflict related to independence. It was therefore an interesting topic to  investigate, within a geographical area (European Union) that was equipped with a range of common legal and administrative structures, which has altered the balance of power in international markets, after 50 years of their origin. Economic circumstances and the international financial crisis that taking place in recent years are having a clear impact on the European Union. Edited Artist Statement
