Marta Soul. In the footsteps of Corin

Marta Soul is inspired by the literary works of the successful Corin Tellado to build a story that delves into human relationships.

These scenic recreations show different situations within the intimacy of a couple, in which the man and the woman assume very specific roles.

Corín Tellado was a writer dedicated to the literature of the romantic genre, also called a romance novel. She edited more than 4.000 books, some translated into different languages ​​and adapted into movies and TV series.

Marta Soul analyzes copies of fotonovelas that are part of her personal archive, where different types of characters and romantic experiences appear that could currently be considered in decline.

Interested in the prototypical image of man represented by the classic concept of masculinity, a concept that seems to fade over time. The same happens with certain romantic behaviors linked to passion as one of the basic states within the couple relationship.

The couple stories are inspired by the work of Corín Tellado applied to the romantic relationships of the present. These scenic recreations show different situations within the intimacy of a couple, in which the man and the woman assume very specific roles. The images also aim to empower the romantic literary genre (romance novel) as one more part of our culture, and in turn explore the dimension of romanticism today.

The collages invite to be interpreted as possible movie posters, with a marked scenic and colorful character. Focused on persuasion and presented as a commercial object, the poster format of these collages alludes to the commercial success achieved by the author. Her stories were massively distributed in magazines and other cultural consumer products.
