Parry en las Calles (Party in the Streets) is an ephemeral project that requires public participation. Art should be accessible to all social classes in society; this is the reason my practice involves working in the urban environment. There is something about brick buildings and bare, wooden panels that I find seductive. I enjoy listening to the natural sounds of the city: children screaming, noisy buses and reckless wind, which are poetic and inspire my intuition as I work.
For Parry en las Calles, I decided to incorporate a painting I made, leaving it among the wheat pasted imagery depicting a flag. The mystery behind its existence is fascinating to me. I envision that a kid took it or a homeless person sold it on the streets. Whatever happens to the painting or whoever owns it now helps me accomplish the project, providing a new life for the piece.
