Monólito

2012



The Monólito project is unique due to its media: one film and one large sculpture.

The Monólito sculpture is a work that contains three openings. A small opening at the top that allows the entrance of zenithal light. A side window, next to which there is a parapet and, from the opposite side, a bed. A narrow passage allows the entrance of one person. The interior is mirrored and reflects dozens of portraits. It is related to a video (Monólito, black and white, 56 ‘10’ ‘), in which the crossing, by a lonely young man, of a semi-wild natural landscape that at the end discovers an enigmatic object. A geometric solid of great dimension, gray, with appearance between a geode and a cave, that is the sculpture Monólito.
