Description

“The idea of Transformation and the longing for a change to come in the aftermath of a great socio-economical crisis in Europe are key to the work, taking the story to a social point of view.

An entheogen, from Greek language, literally means “generating God within”

It is a psychoactive substance that induces a spiritual experience and traditionally have been used to supplement many diverse practices geared towards achieving transcendence.

But this transformation takes place only once a week, almost like an spiritual ritual in which its practitioners can escape from reality” – David Molina Gadea

    It is says that Go to Become speaks about Barcelona and becoming someone else ( a lycantropic monster ? A better person ? ) in the city clubs. But when you open David Molina Gadea first book, you directly enter another planet, as black or white as the obssesive circle that figures on the cover and that rhythm the whole book. In that immersive world, there is no escape, no natural space, no air. The objet itself, with its particular editing such as repetitions, transparent layers, makes the viewer entering a dark tunnel – made of completely matte paper – where he will meet as much beauty as deformity on its way. This is why you won’t recognize the catalan capital city, or the drug and alcool abuses, accross the pages of Go to Become, but instead you will encounter the darkest and paradoxically the brightest part of humans beings. Balancing, under the magic eye of David, between their ardent will for freedom and their own nocturnal prison.

    I can feel the struggle and the desire for a better world.
    The black-and-white images take me to a place where one can be himself during the glimmer of the moon.
    It is a composed and finished book with care and finesse and the sequence is intense and surprising.
    It is one of the books that I will regularly take in my hand to get inspired.
