I’m very excited about publishing my work in La Lavandera, with Elena Aitzkoa and Raúl Domínguez. 

I still don’t know what the book is going to be like.

I am overwhelmed by the infinity which I have begun to put in order.

I don’t even know what there is.

It’ll be a good, hard year of cleaning.

I am grateful for all the texts I needed in the past (that immersed me in a new life, even though I no longer remember it).

There will be certain, initiated investigations, diary, story.

One or two drawings like the ones I do with a ball-point pen in my notebook.

A few vaporised writings: that gradually become lost in themselves until there is nothing left.

A few second voices.

The actuality of the book will be determined by the period of life in which it is developed, while it is being written.

I already have a certain idea about the composition (I want it to be a book like bells).

Many of the texts will be eliminated and those that remain…a new thing

I gradually name them like a mantra






Fanny Mendelssohn


Because people see madness instead of lucidity in the drawings of A. Artaud


To have danced with Natalia.


I will also talk about my family,

about my mother, my father and my brother.

I will say that everything has been due to my love for them.

They were the first beings I knew.
