The artist argues that all these evils that lurk in the contemporary world, and especially those caused by absence or erroneous education in values, have the solution in individual decisions. They pass through two essential concepts, active resilience as the ability to overcome all personal or collective adversities and cooperation in the union of all to overcome the difficulties and injustices, a thought that coincides with that of Lennon in "Imagine" or Miguel Rivers in "The anthem of joy". The union of humanity is possible but it depends on each one of us. And in that scenario, Adriana Torres offers her heart, which is de facto an indissoluble contract for which she commits to take the first step. To proclaim from your life experience, that your commitment, not only as an artist, but as a person is a fact. That she already lives in that conviction of surrender.
Adriana Torres studied Fine Arts at the University of Seville and completed her training with postgraduate courses at the Central Saint Martins of the University of the Arts London. The work is part of the most moving confessional art. That through which the artist allows access to the deepest of their privacy, their worries and obsessions, their fears and their illusions, that from which to proclaim their values and the reasons why they are willing to enter the battle , that from which to discover and share the limits that will not pass and the borders that will not yield, that which does not hide trenches, deciding with full freedom about its time and how it wants to understand its all and its nadas, what fills it and what it empties him, what satisfies him and what he is disgusted, the one that shows how he understands life and the world, that territory where art and life are inseparable.
Adriana Torres has sailed on this project with authentic luggage, vital documents and a transgressive and free will. The one that is required to be offered without preconditions but also without diplomatic and politically correct concessions. You have reached the port of your journey with the rudder of honesty and truth, with the ships of reflection, meditation, tenacity, time, cooperation and silence. With the compass of light and the maps of the essence. Being absolutely consistent with his own life, with the past and the present. Knowing that nothing is possessed, that nothing is possessed, that nothing can be taken from this planet except the guarantee of having lived in union with one another, in peace, and the satisfaction of personal dedication and of having faced what Adverse with love.
Society has become accustomed to coexisting with falsehood, with post-truth, with the idea that the demagogic protest, constructed from the single thought, lacking in self-criticism, must be accepted. The media, social networks, political, social and macroeconomic messages are concerned with manipulating people, not people and their happiness. And this control over society is exercised from childhood without mercy or scruples. Despite saying what everyone wants to hear, the system does the opposite. People know it and live resigned to it. Education in human values is not the goal, but the child is an adult number in the crowd. It is very easy to control a mass, an assembly, but almost impossible to dominate a man faithful to his principles, possessor of universal values and committed to critical thinking.
The scenario of the contemporary world is full of situations of social diseases such as truthful disinformation, the generalization of all types of terror and violence and, among these, gender violence, the inhuman treatment that women have suffered and still suffer, abandonment , individualism, the lack of solidarity and its pandemics (frustration, loneliness, suffering, etc.), forced migration, the increase of refugees due to intolerance and fanatical powers ... A bleak and discouraging panorama of not for the hope offered by resilience and cooperation, the strength of trust.
