Kenia Arguiñao Artist Statement
Throughout the work process I have tried to build a personal language collecting my own dreams. For the past nine years I have mapped my dreams to reveal journeys. Archiving these dreams is part of the process in creating my work, which consists on archiving the dreams I remember and write them in a journal, and if I remember nothing I will write the date as a forgotten dream. Then I have an archive of the days I dream and of those I forget. This work has become a visual representation of my cycle of life.
