Carlos AIRES, who was born in 1974 in Málaga, focuses in his vinyl wall objects as well as in his photographs on the morbidity of the daily life. In his photographs AIRES addresses the issue of social marginal groups and responds to their psychic realities in comparison to the series „Love is in the Air“, which depicts a shattering double reality. AIRES developed this series according to his research of images dealing with violence, terrorism and war, which lose their history and cruelness without their afterimage. AIRES expressed himself as follows: "„Love is in the Air“ deals with the dark side of our daily melodrama: the same finger that switches off the computer screen on which you have just watched horrible images of a war, afterwards rings the bell of a private nightclub."
