(No) soy de aquí

'(No) soy de aquí/ I´m (not) from here ' was born of a faint but persistent discomfort, of the feeling of disbelief about my surroundings and of a dual rejection / attraction that this territory provokes in me. This work is the exploration of that discomfort and of my beliefs about Murcia, the region of Spain where I live.
Exorcism, homage, mockery and research at once, '(No) soy de aquí' is the (self) portrait, made by one of its confused inhabitants, of a place impossible but real.
