"I'm only interested in what is not mine. Law of man. Man-eating Law”
- Oswald de Andrade
We eat and devour what in our eyes causes us pleasure and exaltation. What is not ours is taken by us and transmuted. Anthropophagy. Cannibal meaning of the absorption of all our satisfactions converted into new expressions. Our work has been influenced not only by the aesthetics of photographers, plastic and audiovisual artists, but also by our own perception about art and beauty and the permanent need to carry the unusual, in aesthetic ways that may be able to please, convince and identify people.
Everything that is unlikely is for us a real conception, both in our imagination and in that of our spectators. We look for timeless images that are able to speak for the future - and in the future - of emerging artists who, like us, feed on others to speak, denounce and transmit what we try to imitate from nature and sensitive things.
Our commitment is, like the vanguard, to advance in a postmodern world where there is still rejection and taboos towards the body and sexuality, in terms of socio-cultural constructs and institutions. We want to remove the spirit from the body, undress it and be able to give it another identity - or snatch it, if necessary - to show that there are no natural laws, but reconstructions of concepts and ways of seeing and understanding the inner and outer world.
We, Gerardo Arenas and Genesis Ochoa, Venezuelans and man-eating artists, want to be able to advance in our artistic work and provide an exhibition that is not only to our liking, but also yours. The equipment we have does not limit us as photographers and we have learned to work with what we have. However, our goal is to improve ourselves and show you that creativity has no limits when you do and fight for what you are passionate about.
