Vida, muerte y resurrección (Life, death and resurrection) aims to reposition Britney Spears, indisputable icon of pop culture, as a representative of general contemporary culture that can inspire thoughts about the ways we behave, relate to each other, and co-exist. It’s also motivated by the desire to construct something personal, something that by referencing my own life can be recognised and resound with/in others.
This is a narcissist experience: an exercise in uncovering the unique character of everything one is, continuing to search for a way to reorganise and revisualise the world based on an I that can formulate itself directly, and that can construct narratives based on its own individuality.
