Through video, animation and photography, the artist aims to develop a variety of visual narratives in which he creates characters based on real stories of his own and those close to him. In them, the artist weaves an alternative reality that reflects the results of migratory processes, using indirect references to contemporary historical events. Peñafiel transmutes these real stories into fictional and universal imagery at the same time, always maintaining the essence of the characters and their original situations. This exhibition is part of a larger project by the artist eponymously titled MARE MAGNVM, which includes the ongoing exhibition MARE MAGNVM: The Arrival in our space in Calle Madera, featuring the 81 characters that appear in the video installation.
