Words to the air (2017)
Miniature artist's book by Ioulia Akhmadeeva, Diego Espinoza Carmona, Cesar Rafael Rivera Duran, Jose Francisco Robles Mendoza, Juan Eduardo Salinas Mora.
The albur’ doesn´t disguise, is direct and funny. Unfelt like a colorful game and creative of ability and humor, around metaphors mostly linked to a sexual connotation. The artists play with the visible and textual, becoming real “albureros”; putting to the specter’s like rivals that with mental agility must answer.
