Photo curtesy of the artist: Running out of water, Black and white photography, Print on aluminum, Limited edition of 7, 2019


“Running out of water” is an artwork composed of ten images in which three elements are present: a lifeless fish, an empty bottle, and water (the sea).The whole situation of this work is at the same time, in the last light of the sunset. The project talks about water, but in both subjects the water is not present. The bottle, which has been invented to carry water is empty and the fish, which has all its existence water-related, can no longer carry water or life.

It is the time that breaks this vital relationship. Dehydration, which happens with its passage, creates the momentum of this project.
