GUARDIAS

“GUARDIAS” IS A PROJECT BASED ON FAMILY FILES, WHICH RUNS THROUGH SEVERAL GENERATIONS USING THEIR PROFESSION
AS A SHARED LINK. FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS CREATE A UNIQUE AND VERY PERSONAL
SYSTEM, CONTRADICTORY AND EVER-CHANGING, IN WHICH CERTAIN ROLES COEXIST GENERATING
RULES OR PATTERNS, USUALLY CREATED UNCONSCIOUSLY, THAT ARE ASSUMED BY THE NEW
GENERATIONS THROUGH A THREAD OF HARMONY. IN ALMOST ALL FAMILY SYSTEMS THERE ARE
SO-CALLED “FAMILY MYTHS”, SYSTEMATIZED, SHARED BELIEFS THAT ARE
CHANNELED THROUGH INTERACTION. THEY ARE OFTEN EXPRESSED BY SECRET RULES, WHICH
ONLY MEMBERS KNOW AND NORMALISE. THESE MYTHS DETERMINE INTRA-FAMILY
RELATIONSHIPS AND POSSESS A HOMEOSTATIC CHARACTER, AS THEY SELF-REGULATE,
STABILIZE AND ESSENTIALLY, REJECT CHANGE.
