LO APREHENDIDO

works by Myriam Moreno

With Lo Aprehendido, I continue my research into the archetype of the serpent and, in this case specifically, its skin. The skin is a representation of lived experience, what is apprehended, and what is assimilated to build the future. I explore the energy of the snake as a creative force, as a spirit of Mother Earth, and as an archetype for the feminine. 

Stockings are a garment with many connotations. They are feminine and sensual, but what I personally find most interesting about this piece of clothing is its function as an extra skin. Like snakes, we also live with this double skin. We build the future. We draw a red line that unites us with ourselves and with whom we have been accompanied, cutting the thread at the necessary time. All of this makes new realities, builds beauty.
