Whether it is travel or construction, the movement is questioning Hernandorena’s work, from a change desire that leads to a new situation. Convening different media, the artist works with significantly changing the nature of objects, of things and spaces. Without knowing if they are realities shown as fictions, fictions full of reality or totally chimerical situation. De facto it creates other spaces where several incompatible temporalities several spaces live in reality frames.
