Guintche. This piece derives from a person’s picture I drew as a memento of a concert. I called him Guintche and meanwhile he grew, acquired self-life, autonomy, rebelled.
Drawings create persona with self-life, beings whose fate is cheating expectations. Guintche is the intense life that formed and departed from the original formless essence. No longer a prosthesis of a though to become a dance.
