Pellejos sueltos’ (Scattered Remains) is a set of pieces mid-way between painting, sculpture, object and installation. These pieces were designed to adapt to a specific space (a living room with a checkered floor in Madrid) and subsequently be extricated from it.
In this change of context, the pieces gain an aura of trophy or relic, thereby reproducing a process of conquest of sorts.

A parallel narrative runs through the piece referring to a cognitive experiment known as ‘The Invisible Gorilla’ (1), implemented to show a form of perceptual blindness.
