L21 Gallery
Palma de Mallorca, Spain

341 Steps received that name because of the amount of steps I took to get from L21 Gallery to an empty lot located on the confluence of two streets, Gremi de Ferrers and Gremi de Sabaters, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. This garbage dump was the destination place for diverse domestic and industrial waste. With that material I made four works that subvert the utilitarian condition of collected material, works that considered together create a physically unstable situation, works whose titles propose new relations of meaning between them.

Break its will, so it submits to your will: two metal sawbucks hold pieces of an abandoned boat which I intervened by cutting, modeling and polishing its structure. The results are two bodies whose forms suggest new aerodynamic relations that, at the same time, move towards and away from the original design of the ship.

The comfort of being something you are not: three PVC pipes united and curved with an iron pipe on the inside creating in space a single line that defies gravity and stays on foot in spite of the irregularity of its shape.

Necessity can be as arbitrary as the whims we wave: on top of a window anchored to the ground I placed a green cape that I used to cover myself from the rain while I collected waste for the exhibition. The cape covers a part of the window and its reticule, drawing in space a flat, hieratic and mute volume.

Emotional approaches to questions given by circumstances and gravity: a subtle structure holds a group of old tiles, complete and broken, to the wall. Together they form a composition of pictorial character with the remainder of the material originally used to glue them to a wall.
