Les Daré Lo Que Quieren (I will give them what they want)

Taking an ironic sentence as a premise for this action, I explore my fragile and wild condition as a human being. I use my body in ways that border on self-aggression, trying to construct images that encourage viewers to consider their own bodies in unusual emotional states beyond the ﬁeld of their everyday experience.
