Intervention with black clothes
Years ago, while saying goodbye at the U-Bahn station, Martínez pointed to me a series of black garments hanging in the streets. He explained that in many countries, it is a symbol used as a manifest of inconformity to the social status quo. The bitter smile he had while pointing them reminds me of the Outopia photographs: they both make me think of the encouraging uneasiness and of that critical attitude that echoes throughout his work.
