OCCULTARE PER MOSTRARE
CONCEAL TO REVEAL
Much of Carmen her work constantly reminds us that at every moment of our lives we do nothing else than wearing masks, even when we delude ourselves of the contrary. The game of the artist is to unmask the reality and expose the result to undermine the sense of personal identity and our certainties in life. Carmen does not neglect to also act reflexively questioning her own identity, a process that finds its fulfillment in her works.
