ANOPHELES

SCULPTURE

Download the exhibition catalogue

( in Spanish- Catalan )

ANOPHELES is an artistic project consisting in sculpture and drawing. It is a reflection on transmission, heredity,human condition and other aspects, from an singular perspective.

The medical definition of Transmission is: “ transfer or conveyance of a thing or condition, such as an infectious or genetic disease from one person to another, or hereditary trait from parent to offspring.”

In the sculpture Anopheles, this insect is shown in a two hundred times increased size, offering a more watchful observation of the beauty of its shape, in contradiction with the frightful menace of the insect. In an odd concept of heredity, human figures will be reduced to an insect colony, reminding us of our parasitical attitude towards the environment. 

The Anopheles project was exhibited at the Maneu Art gallery in Palma de Mallorca in 2009. The art- works were edited in a catalogue and different pie- ces of this project were included in further collective exhibitions: “ Nuevas presencias 09“ , “Objects & Graphics“ and “ XIX Drawing contest Gregorio Prieto”.

 

The project includes large scale sculptures in resin and fibreglass, plaster, porcelain, as well as small scale silver and iron sculpture. Scroll down to see more images and visit the gallery for related drawings.
