Fundación Fernando María Centenera Jaraba V Certamen de Dibujo Contemporáneo Pilarby Andrés Centenera Jaraba

This piece is for the “Fundación Fernando María Centenera Jaraba  V Certamen de Dibujo Contemporáneo Pilarby Andrés Centenera Jaraba
(Fernando Maria Foundation Centenera V Jaraba Contemporary Drawing Contest Pilarby Andrés Centenera Jaraba)
 
“Its objectives are the conservation and enhancement of the International Contemporary Art Collection and the promotion and dissemination of the artistic work of new artists in all its manifestations and, especially, the drawing.”
 
The exhibition “Me, Myself and I and the winning artists selected for this fourth call, will be exhibited in Madrid during the month of February 2013, in Room La Lonja (beside the Matadero) Arganzuela district of Madrid.

 

This is what I wrote for the discription of the piece:

The crows are inspired by a story from Norse mythology. Huginn (from Old Norse “thought”) and Muninn (Old Norse “memory or “mind) are a pair of crows who fly around the world to bring back news back to the god Odin.

In this work there is a faceless girl representing myself, with two crows on either side. The crows are my eyes, they can be mischievous and not always tell the truth
I front of her lays a book that is made up of the words in Spanish: Yo, Me and Mismo, ( Me, Myself and I) leaving the crows to translate the meaning for her.
