“BACK TO THE ROOTS, WE ARE PRIDE OF THE STREET”
The fourth Creative Space continues its project “Back to the roots” which aims to contribute to the ancestral memory of the future through the fusion of the artists of the present.
On this occasion, we are joined by Juega Siempre, an urban artist with extensive experience in street art, and the Dedos y Palabras embroiderers’ collective, which is launching as a group of women who come together to embroider everyday stories.
For this crossroads of dialogues, Juega Siempre presents the “Street Pride” series, large-format stencil portraits that pay homage to anonymous people who experience urban space directly; and the Dedos y Palabras collective, through an ancient tradition such as embroidery, captures them in the new KP INVISIBLE Kaftan poncho, resulting in a new style of street glamour.
The Street Pride series presents large-format portraits based on photographs taken mostly by the artist himself. It is consolidated as a tribute to the anonymous people who live the urban space directly, and whose activities exalt the public character of the city, generating diversity and culture; In the same way, it also proposes a questioning about the imposition of commercial idols by advertising.
He has made more than ten solo exhibitions and one hundred group exhibitions nationally and internationally.
Fingers & Words is a space open to anyone who wants to express themselves through any manual art, valuing and respecting above all our roots and the evolution of these trades that allow us to be here and now transmitting and sharing knowledge.
The Collective was born after many Wednesdays of sharing stories, threads, roncitos and needles… Initially we met to work each one on their personal project but we decided to give the space a face and promote it a little more so that people are encouraged and fall to share , it will always be very gratifying to meet new people and arts.
It is a space for everyone!
