In a short period with deep and accelerated changes, we frequently look at the past to find foundations to reflect on the historical meaning of these variations. The project is an enunciation of the past, a counteroffensive to our natural death impulses that push us to oblivion, amnesia, and the annihilation of memory. This archaeology intends to reassemble and find material and symbolic evidence that allows us to answer questions, recover memories and withhold silenced truths that appear as units of information in an allegoric key. The appropriation and use of the past; it is excavated, rediscovered, identified and interpreted, a central process in the construction of our own identity. These studies on portrait are a mean that, through its specific practice, allows us to analyze the “naked experience” of its order and make historical information -frequently lost or misplaced- be physically present.
