Photography on aluminium dibond and metacrilate
60 x 40 cm or 40 x 60 cm / CRYOPRESERVED FORMS V 140 x 280 cm

In the series of nine photographs Cryopreserved-forms (2014) abstract shapes are shown frozen in time in a water environment, in a diapause, waiting to be activated. With vibrant light, the human-vegetable forms in hibernation raise questions about the consequences and implications of the genetic and technological advances in the field of medicine and technology, the boundaries between the preservation of life or the question of cryopreservation, and make us reflect about consciousness and human, animal or vegetable beings.

The study of the element of water and its behaviour in different states takes us right back to our most primeval origins, as there are theories that claim that life emerged in an underwater fumarole that came up to the surface millions of years ago. Water appears as a means to encapsulate life, as if in a diapause waiting for suitable conditions for life that makes us think about cryopreservation, or a hybridisation of the soul.
