Anastasis and Exaltation are two different works made with the same image, installed in opposite sides of the gallery. The images show a nude self-portrait of the artist, standing on his head in his bedroom, with a camera obscura projected over the artist body and the wall. Exaltation, however, is turned upside down. These works play with the inversion as a metaphor of the re-configuration of the cosmogonic order of things in different dimensions: up and down, in and a out, small and large, light and dark, among others. The photographs seek to convey an eerie atmosphere, trying to bring a magical sense to our mundane reality.
