ARTE SANTANDER 2011 / XX INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR

End: 24 de Julio de 2011

Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos
Avda. del Stadium s/n · 39005 Santander

arteko galería- stand 14

Presented artist: pilar soberon


Exhibition project Oro-Grafik, which includes the artist’s, Pilar Soberón (San Sebastian, 1971) most recent unshown work and the installation Aeolia (2010)

Under the title Oro-Grafik, the installation Orografik (2011) and the photographic mosaic Disseminations are presented.

The thistle flowers, flying seeds installed in the wall, make up a new orography while they evoke biological organisms, ways of adaptation and survival. At the same time, these same elements install themselves in the body of the artist herself, fusing the anthropomorphic and the geologic, resulting in a mural of photographs called Disseminations (2011), a new orographic projection.

On the other hand, we include the installation Aeolia (2010). An installation of 100 gold-plated maple seeds, which move through the space vertically, alongside the photographs of Aeolia’s Park.

Dissemination’s project

Disseminations Project claims the spectator’s involvement beyond a merely normal mental interpretation. The artist Pilar Soberón has arranged more than a hundred boxes with their mysterious thistle flowers so that the public can experiment on the piece and create their own videos and pictures, which later will go on the artist’s blog.

As Gerardo Elorriaga comments, apart from the invitation to this game, the initiative calls into question categories and roles. The artist says: «I would like to get rid of the concept of an artist as the centre of the world and offer the possibility to all who visit ARTESANTANDER 2011, of creating and thereby disseminating their own work in space».

Send your photo or video to pili.s@terra.es. All collaborations will be shown at the stand of the arteko galería in ARTESANTANDER 2011 from the 20th of July and on www.pilarsoberon.blogspot.com

Thanks for your collaboration.
