The Eriza collection rebels against being merely objects. They want to be subjects.
The structures used in the surfaces of the “Eriza” pieces were taken from the organic patterns that compose the Universe: from galaxies to cells we see how parts connect creating patterns and bringing life to the form. The marine fauna inspires the legs of the tables, so we can relate to animals like sea urchins, jellyfishes and slugs. Art imitates life. The intention of the Eriza Collection is to take that as a statement and make a reflection about the importance that other forms of life (non-human) have in the construction of our world and how they constitute a fundamental part of our imaginary. There is an implicit preoccupation about the actual (and future) state of our oceans and environment. Our times are difficult times for the non-human life. The space that civilization has been taking is forgetting the marginal natural spaces that have survived. We are nothing without other existences. Our psyche, our culture, is actually made of stories and archetypes of animals. Our subconscious speaks the language of water.
