I am interested in the direct meaning of objects and reality. I am not concerned with so-called aesthetic or touching interventions. Probably what attracts me most is the relationship I have with the objects. We cannot forget that we remain in a consumer society. Some people still make framed paintings and sculptures on plinths—that is, the old definition of art. We cannot ignore our historical moment; it is useless to continue with the techniques of the twentieth century. I’m thinking about art that challenges and goes around the bureaucratic paths of consumer society in its impotent ignorance" (González, 1979).
