‘Explosive breasts’ stands as a visual synthesis of Glez’s main artistic concerns
Titled after one of the featured works, ‘Explosive breasts’, this drop stands as a visual synthesis of Alejandra Glez’s main artistic concerns. On the one hand, it showcases her ironical yet deeply feminist point of view with the video animation featuring female breasts of different shapes and colors flying like balloons and then exploding in the air, squirting milk and covering the camera as if they were made of plasticine. On the other, through the limited editions of ‘Absence’ and ‘Presence’ and the video ‘Absence-Presence’, it reflects on the uncomfortable truth of how most of the violence against women goes unpunished. Last, with the work ‘Body and space limits’, this drop portrays Glez’s fascination with architecture and the repetition of gestures and body motions in the space.
