Autoría colectiva (Collective Authorship, 2019) is a painting signed by all the people who participated in the process. As in the cinema, where even the most auxiliary work has its share of recognition in the credits, in this piece, the trades that were necessary to make painting possible, receive their respective consideration. Thus, the creators of painting, brushes, canvas… are present.
The work claims, in this way, a choral authorship, a teamwork far from the romantic ideal (and as reactionary as attractive) of artist, which is not an isolated genius of society. We must end the individualistic idea of creation. God doesn’t exist.
In the photograph, made in my studio, there is an empty chair waiting for the viewer, the last part of the process and without it, nothing would make sense. Use this symbol as a claim.
