Selections from Cariño and Selección Natural
Cariño (2011) translated “Affection” is the story of three young people entering into adulthood that are living in an artificial green square. The world is far away or lost and that distance brings to light the most primal instincts in forced cohabitation without a clear boundary or law. They relate to each other as children, as orphaned siblings, as a mother and wife and children or lovers, as two disciples of a sadistic governess. These relationships exceed world relations exposed to a variety of languages that end constituting an unconscious and sensory narrative.
