Sara Mayoral Jimenez 1993, Madrid, Spain.
My work can be defined as a contemplative practice, I try to provide and extend the self-awareness to be aware of one's environment , heritage, instincts and dynamics that build one's identity. Documenting how I recognise myself (inside) simultaneously with how I percieve the world (outside)
Understanding the Human being as a being composed by a physical and emotional dimension, my art practice places the attention to the apparently simple moments that conforms what we called “life experiences” and that defined our identity as an individual.
I use my personal life experiences, I consider the relation between intimacy, emotions, family narratives, memories and my own body to question our believes and to provide a critical reflection about the human condition.
My artwork has always a poetic approach which connects in different levels with the viewer, providing a platform to channel emotions and to reflect. I work mainly combining different media and techniques, using video, painting, drawing, photography, performance and ceramics
Where everything is mixed... where the relations between x behave in a sort of rhizome, where a project begins where another one continues and ends at its own beginning, constantly changing during the time of its creation,
Where each project is responsible for the previous one and the one that continues.
Interrelated objects that are part of performances, installations that become painting, painting that becomes the protagonist of a documentary, a documentary that gives way to a poem about my mother, that transforms my sculptures into birds' nests, and later those nests are nothing more than a symbol of an everyday moment, the perfect excuse to talk about how I had my wisdom teeth pulled out.
Of a failed project, of a lost of friendship, of a hat that I thought had been stolen...
People asked me:
_ Are you a conceptual artist?
_ I am a speaking, thinking artist.
