Press Release

Hemos querido abordar la temática del destino desde sus múltiples acepciones. Destino como meta, como punto de llegada de un viaje. Pero también destino como trayectoria vital, como el encadenamiento de sucesos que determinan nuestra existencia. Destino como ventura, fortuna, estrella o suerte que la providencia nos tiene guardada para cada uno de nosotros. Destino como hado, que actúa como fuerza desconocida e inexorable sobre la humanidad.
