Ignacio Navas


“Kickflip” is a photographic project materialized into a video game through an interactive audiovisual installation. This work gathers the testimony of a group of friends whose adolescence, in the early 2000s, revolves around the skatepark of Tudela.

As part of a recovery act of shared memory, the viewer explores this place to discover photographs, found documents, and voice recordings where each individual of this group of friends recounts their own experiences, offering new perspectives on topics related to adolescence, such as academic failure, self-discovery of sexuality and identity, or exploration of different musical subcultures.

The collection of these stories not only reflects the nuances of a personal history but also aims to critically review the values, stereotypes, and behaviors of middle-class teenagers who have grown up in provincial cities.
