Leticia Polaco

I think, cut, join, disarm and fragment. I rearm, compose, and create.
I make collages in which I build life stories. I elaborate my own and others, I work from found images that I place on paper to tell small stories with deep meanings.
Many of these stories are about split women, fragmented, marked by culture and language. They oscillate between happiness and sadness, innocence and adulthood, pain and joy, health and illness, light and darkness. All these facets can be within the same person. The girl is not the same when she is an adult, when she is a mother or when she grows old, but they all live together in the same body.
I tell stories between divided hearts, I make tributes in card games as in the story “Alice in Wonderland”. The universe is leafy, as well as my imagination.
