«Vortex»

Riudarenes, Girona

Clay, earth.

1999.

«Vortex» sculptural action where we dig a semi-spherical hole big enough to contain me, in which after a turning process made in plaster we manage to make a perfect hemisphere whose radius is my height 1,77. In this spherical space in which I stood, my head coincided with
centre. After living the space we filled the hole again with the strained earth, so that the skin (limit) of the hemisphere
is visible as a 4 cm thick circular line. A three-dimensional line, as a sign of non-visible integrity. A boundary that separates the inside from the outside. The sphere is probably the most representative geometric element that shows the idea of the separation between inside and outside.

Maded with the help of the sculptor Benjie Alabau.
