RAQUEL BESUDO

Narrative / Mexico

 

Through my work, I explore the quotidian, my everyday relationship with what surrounds me — little and intimate happenings or places that inspire me, then become an intrinsic part of my work.

If I refer to memories, it is a selective and conscious process to preserve those instants.

The use of Fabric, embroidery, and paint has become an essential part of my work, and they are my words. How I make them interact, complete the sentences and help me writing the story.
