AND AN AFTERWARDS
“The next one is born in the gaze of those who remain.” And one after that is to face the vacuum left by a mother and understand that no one teaches us to be orphans. With an intimate and irresistible voice, Alejandro Palomas welcomes us in the intimacy of the duel and gets caught up in the pain, naked and pure, emanating from absence. It’s the desire to meet her, to get into the idea of living with memories, the sweetness of understanding and discovering the woman hiding behind a mother.
‘What is caesary, Mom?
It’s opening a gift with a knife.”
