Unique piece, made totaly with the technique of contemporary bobbin lace by hand, both the background and the figure of the click (female = clack).
The piece measures 600 x 450 mm.
The figure represents St. Lucia, (patron of sick children, the poor, the blind and photographers among others.) Adapted to a current pop language through a click of Playmobil.
The main figure: the click, has no eyes and the dress is broken, alluding to what the patron saint is. The secondary figure: the eyes are lying and illuminate from the ground the main figure and call the viewer to observe the figure of the doll.
The work tries to adapt the traditional figure of Sta. Lucia and decontextualize the traditional language that uses bobbin lace (like flowers, landscapes, etc.) to a current language, underground and urban (Lucia is also patron of the cities) and offers a irony and a visual game between the past with the name and the present by means of a plastic toy.
With this piece I intend to relate certain concerns such as: the blindness we have in the countries where we think about everything around us that there is no poverty, the little delicacy towards the people who suffer and we turn our gaze to the ground to forget and not see.
That's why I chose the Playmobil doll, a static plastic doll, with hardly any movement, with her dress broken and with her eyes pulled and at the same time with the counterpoint that she cries blood because she can not see her surroundings.
