OBJECTS IN PLACES

This project intends to explore the relationship between material objects and the place they occupy within a culture, starting from two intertwined issues: on the one hand, how an object is physically affected by the environment in which it exists, and on the other, how a change in context also modifies our subjective perception of that same object.
The first question is posed through three sculptural objects without defined cultural attributes, to each of which some elements belonging to our daily reality have been added, thus inscribing them in the specific environment of our time and place in the world. A minimum cultural load can be enough to situate us in a particular here and now.
The second procedure develops the fundamental aspect of the project: the passage from the physical, three-dimensional plane to that of representation in different two-dimensional images. The same object (without the later additions) is transferred to a series of very diverse historical contexts. Each image has been created using representation systems distinctive of the moment and place chosen, based on a wide range of drawing techniques.
As Mircea Eliade pointed out in Images and Symbols, a stone or a human finger can be considered receptacles of the sacred, without ceasing to be material objects exactly like others that nevertheless do not play that role. In the same way, a material considered a work of art, besides being object of contemplation and reflection, can simultaneously fulfill many other purposes, without necessarily affecting its aesthetic function by this.
