"ASTILLAS" ("Splinters" / "Échardes")
BARRANCO, LIMA, PERU
An Interactive Exhibition
"Astillas" se pretende como una experiencia creativa compartida entre Eltono y el espectador. La instalación irá adquiriendo las formas que el público desee darle al mover las piezas de lugar y establecer todas las combinaciones posibles e imaginables, la instalación irá adquiriendo también la forma de los deseos de todos los participantes. Y a través de ese sencillo modelo de armado y desarmado permanente, la obra dejará de pertenecer a una sola persona, se hará literalmente astillas y será parte de todos.
Empiece a mover las piezas y déle rienda suelta a su voluntad.
Second step, find wood in the streets around the gallery. We found a lot on a friend's aunt rooftop.
Too much wood to carry it walking so guess who helped us?
The friendly Policia Nacional with their brand new pick up!!! They brought everything to the gallery door,
helped us to unload the car, shook hands and kissed girl's cheek and went back on their night patrol.
La cosecha de la noche!
Pacific Ocean view from the gallery.
Ready to start working.
I spent one day to clean the dust on the 101 boards, Lima is crazily dusty!
I painted during four days.
And used a looooot of masking tape!
