“If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.”

Gaston Bacherlard

The Poetics of Space, 1965

This project is born from the need to explore the space of sleeping and resting as

an escape and a fantasy. The images are an expression of the desire to get out of

reality and the physical condition, of the pure body, to which the virus has returned

us. At the beginning of the confinement, I had the feeling that my body was

something that hurt me and that it could easily fall apart. I began to make these

images and as an act of resistance to that violence that I was experiencing. I turned

to photography as a possible space in which to invent a place with vestiges of what

does not exist.
