  • MARIANA MONTEAGUDO'S FAKE IDOLS:
     
    This is the beginning of a new stage in my work. I’m starting to investigate new materials such as hard latex and other synthetic derivatives, in a search that will certainly enrich my work and provide new languages or means of expression to my 10 years + career.
     
    The work has been slowly unfolding a different spirit, more industrial, more hybrid, taking references from the memory of our generation.
     
    Little heroes, versions of action figures, cartoon characters and Barbie dolls are the sources of inspiration. A look from the distance to the icons of our society, trying not to take them for granted, but showing a different side, sometimes dark and frightening.
     
    The idea is that the viewer would be able to construct a sort of mental collage of associations derived from distinct territories and that he or she could feel familiar to as well as estranged by these images….

    Back in 1998 I started to make a group of small statuettes with plaster, ceramic, cloth and wax, among other materials.
    They came out very spontaneously, and had a strong and unsettling look.
    They spoke by themselves with a loud voice, without prejudices or preconceptions...
    the creative process was, and has been natural and intuitive. These characters come from an inner passion I can't quite describe, they come from the guts...
