About The Artwork

Site; This project is realized in conjunction with the celebration of "le patrimoine du Perigord", whose 2013 in France focus was la charbonnière. It was about how they made charcaol in the past. I made the installation in the old barn of the Presbytère de St Avit de Vialard. It was an empty space of 10x4x5m. Stone walls and a sand floor. Project idea and philosophical background; In the “Ashes & Firebirds” project, I am particularly interested in rituals involving the transformation process, by the traditional making of charcoal. To me it evokes an ephemeral process during which a kind of large landscape-art-sculpture was consumed by fire, leaving practically no trace. My installation had a similar short-lived existence. The installation was fusioning painting and sculpture. The “Feather Wall screen” was an assemblage of 40 paper modules on one wall. The wall modules were later transformed into the 5 three-dimensional “Feather Sculptures" One of these sculptures is since 2013 in the collection of the FDAC, France. Materials; Charcoal pigments, paper pulp, tracing paper, ashes, Japanese paper. The binding materials were paraffin, hot transparent glue and acrylic mediums.

Born in 1949 San Sebastian, Spain, lives in Netherlands and France - Large Conceptual Installations - New projects each year - Light & heavy materials - Unconventional techniques developing works passing over the borders of sculpture and painting - Project books with special layouts - Active in many countries. My esthetic standpoint is based on the duality between life and death. Therefore in each of my projects I choose materials out of two types, either light translucent or heavy opaque ones. Among the first ones are light textile materials, as gauze, rice paper, tracing paper, organza, the second type includes lead, sea salt, wood, charcoal, porcelain and stone. I have developed my projects in the numerous places where I lived; they reflect my nourishment with the local cultures as well as the spiritual significance of the installation site. Six or seven process steps make up every project: from identifying the concept and suitable installations spaces, through the transformation of poor materials into poetic objects, to the final design and the production of books about the realization of the art work.
