I never cared about the games they played, is a series of paintings produced in 2018, during her stay in Auckland city. It takes as reference, landscape features, posters of Heavy Metal and symbols of the masculine world, to recreate images that differ and contrast with the stereotypes of the feminine. The deformed, visceral, grotesque and darkness appear as constitutive components of that rupture.

These elements are appropriated in post to recreate an environment outside of reality, but which alludes directly to it. Insomnia, fire, wounds, cracks, holes, debris, chains, vomit, snakes and volcanic lava, is what we face in this world at times too hostile and this looks to get worse if you are in a woman's body.

The title of the series is based on a fragment of a Metallica song and refers in some way to an awakening, I never cared about the games they played.
