This work was acquired for the FMCMP Art Collection during the JustMadrid Fair 2015, at the stand of the Art Deal Project gallery, based in Barcelona. It belongs to the Crashroom series, consisting of pieces in different formats, where the young Granada artist portrays real people who have undergone a process of depersonalization or individual psychological violence, which is overcome by collective uniformity, wrapping each individual in his/her own veil of isolation. This ability of the artist to transmute film and photography, movement and stillness is combined effectively by the positions of the female protagonists, whose costumes and staging translate the strength of the white that acts as a chromatic code of invisibility. The mirror, a recurring element in the piece, provides the hints of surrealism that characterise other works by Verdejo, skilfully combining clothes and portraits to compose unsettling universes.
