En el cole como en casa (At school as at home) is the title of the project I ran with the teachers and students of the Cardenal Cisneros Kindergarten in Torrelaguna.
“Art paves an inner path back HOME. The references to HOME as a dwelling place for the spirit and a place for meditation are always present in my work. HOME is a safe space that we all know and can identify, regardless of our age, experiences, or external conditions. HOME harbours our growth.
I am interested in observing the implications of this feeling of being at HOME, calm. Little by little we start opening the windows of our HOME to let more light in, which in turn illuminates our feelings, our thoughts, and our actions. We evolve together by performing our small tasks at HOME.
And children understand this very quickly.”
In this project, children are given the opportunity to build a HOME, and later, to inhabit it with objects that are meaningful to them. This, whilst keeping to the theme of PEACE, LOVE, EQUALITY.
