“I had spent 10 years cutting out magazines, posters … to make fifty works.”

In 1987 I held an exhibition at the IFAL (French institute of Latin America) in Collages, “The force in balance”. I had spent 10 years cutting out magazines, posters … to make fifty works.

After bringing to light the invisible monsters that gave rise to the absence of a coherent reality, Zalathiel dedicated himself to capturing the too visible monsters of the contemporary environment: machines and gears of steel, acceleration of time, stagnation of space, urban universes that crush man instead of corresponding to his desires, vain and laughable proliferation of consumer objects that submerge and only leave us the possibility cry of despair.
