Semillas is a two-person project in which the artists Cristina Flores and Clara Best reflect on childhood memories and family situations that contributed to the construction of their identities as women. The project presents twelve sculptural pieces, a video art and finally a performance proposal in situ.
From the concept of seeds, Cristina inquires about the experiences she has inherited, reflects on what she offers to her environment and develops a process of self-exploration and healing, and creates six textile sculptures from crocheting; offering seeds whose cultivation affects not only the artist, but all her environment.
