«Tez» pays tribute to the natural passage of time through our skin, an allegory of life as an indivisible part of our planet.
Art U Ready exhibits during ARCO, «Tez», a project by the artist Carla Cascales Alimbau. This showing is included in its cycle of exhibitions where the focus is placed on the planet and the connection of the human being with its environment and its influence on it. The exhibition will take place at its headquarters, El Invernadero, located on 11, San Lorenzo St, in Madrid.
This exhibition makes us think about our consumption habits, highlighting the long-lasting products versus the fashion slavery, since the most sustainable product is the one that is designed to last longer.
Through this exhibition the artist explores, on one hand, ideas such as the erroneous concept of the fugacity of beauty, valuing the transformation we experience throughout life, understanding the deterioration and imperfections as the experiences that are reflected in our skin, which make us unique. On the other hand, this proposal claims that we should not protect nature as something external to us, except that we are an indivisible part of our environment and, therefore, taking care of it is taking care of ourselves.
For this, the artist proposes a poetic installation designed for this space that will be shown for the first time within the framework of ARCO. A floating universe created from large format canvases made only with natural materials such as the latex used, extracted from tree resins: that is how Cascales obtains textures that remind us of our own skin and invite us to reconnect with our essence. She includes in its proposal ceramic sculptures made with a potter’s wheel, whose colours are obtained from natural pigments of the earth.
Carla Cascales Alimbau (1989, Barcelona)
