Descubre la editorial ‘Ancá’ por Paula Díaz

«Ancá» is a photographic project that speak about the concept of the classic gypsy dress. It consists of a version of the traditional concept of the garment, creating a new ‘style’, combined with sport and everyday garments. Although currently it has become a high-cost garment and its use has been taken to a festive context (that of the fair, for example), our intention with this project is to decontextualize it, alienate it from that current framework and transfer it to its origin: that of a garment for daily use, but introduced in a contemporary context. The gypsy dress began as a ruffled robe that the peasant women and gypsy women used to “do chores.” Later, they would be seen at livestock fairs in Andalusia and would conform the concept we know today. This project consists of a series of photos framed within the costumbrism, and whose title comes from the Andalusian expression ”ancá”, which expresses a place that belongs to someone, a home, a house: this afternoon I’m going ancá the grandmother. Portraits, also, of the streets of the neighborhood, which show us a new way of assuming this garment so current in Spanish culture, and more specifically in Andalusian identity.
