Eres un fantasma (You are a ghost) ​(2016) constitutes a collection of forms photographed in the public space during urbans derives. “Thinking the city as a place charged with symbols, my recent work is an affirmation on how it is possible to connect with allegorical situations, archetypes and even myths through photographic practice”. This way Márquez makes of the “space practice and the wander, a way to reveal another order of the world. The oeuvres from ​Eres un fantasma cultivate a tension between the photographic register and the sculpture, making visible the potential of the ordinary objects to transform themselves in disconcerting structures. Our perception of the space is dominated by the images that can surpass the physical experiences, then stays the doubt if it would possible to live in the images
