Vent-Metall at Centre Cultural Blanquerna (Madrid, Spain) 2016
This site-specific artwork, curated by Juan Bufill for the exhibition Nous Relats Fotogràfics, reveals how constant changes in light throughout the day alter the chromatic surface of all three pieces displayed. The three geometrical stages that give shape to Vent-Metall have been constructed through the use of seven still images from project AB (air). They articulate the longing for aesthetic ascent associated with the desire for spiritual ascension described by Ramon Llull in his work Blanquerna (1283). The purpose of this project is to free shape from its heavy gravity, allowing it to rise and dematerialise into the air, thus prompting the viewer to reflect on the changes of state in plastic matter.
