Antonio Miguel

by Miguel, 2000

My pieces are always born from an impossibility of affirmation - affirmation in the sense of certainty. Society always pushes us towards affirmative values: power, strength, achievements, harmony, etc. What is behind all this is what interests me - frailty, fear, absurd, the monster that might be inside each one of us. How do we live with uncertainty, with our limitations, with the unknown, with mortality in confrontation with culture and with how we build our world? Antonio Miguel was born from these premises, as well as from the necessity or importance of performances in our lives and in society. It’s also about artistic creation, original(ity) and identity, about the individual in relation with others and the necessity of a mirror so that we can be fulfilled.
