Jacobo Alonso

 b. Ensenada, Mexico, 1984.

Jacopo Alonso’s work is about self-recognition in body-object duality as a temporary state, this recognition happens when the body relates with the world.

He considers that our physical representation is an unstable material structure. This latent corporal entity is mutable, it can take any form, however we keep  its  shape  because it denotes identity. The way we relate to our body — how we perceive it  and how we feel it —  directly affects the way we appreciate the other objects. We are like sponges, and sometimes we absorb so much until our size increases and we forget our original shape.

Talking about what we feel can be difficult but sometimes we feel things so strongly that we cannot think about anything else but our body.
