Leonora Carrington

These photos were taken in Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City. The exposition at the time was Cuentos Magicos (Magic Tales), a chronological presentation of the work from Leonora Carrington.

She was born in an upper-class family in northern England, live in France where she joined the surreal movement, but it was later in her life until Carrington moved to Mexico where her art thrived. She struggled to fit in her home country as well in France and Spain. However, she found in Mexico a place to call home.

I believe I choose the name Stereo-d because at the time I really liked a song called Musique Automatique from the German group Stereo Total ( I don’t see other reason why! lol ). We can also see that at that time of my life, I was a little obsessed with the film Borat. We can see that I included a cover from the song  “Kulki boolchek Bing-Bang-Bing-Bang-Bing“.

But if you ask me why I choose orange; I don’t have the slightest idea.

Nice times!

Capricious Shadows that open space to a world of light satisficing their own vanity forming suspicious figures with informal sentiments.

LIFE

Life is given in the most unexpected place under the most unexpected circumstances; It’s a shame to waste it foolishly. You should never take it for grant it because even the smallest creature fights and fiercely hang on living.
