Pedro Saralegui - Perfils crítics



From Saturday 14 | June to Sunday 07 | December
Can Mario Museum, Palafrugell




Pedro Saralegui (San Sebastián, 1949) is showing in Room 3 at Can Mario his latest sculptural work and his installation Perfils crítics (Critical Profiles) from 1996. Markedly conceptual, the artist’s work is centred on what we may term contra-sculpture; the sculpting and giving form to shadows cast by bodies. The results are enigmatic hieroglyphs with little in common with their subjects. He produces two realities with one becoming a metaphor of the other; the projected shadow, burnt and contorted, is an artistic vehicle for the sculptor, like Plato’s Cave, to point up the division between the visible world of shadows and the intangible world of ideas, where the true form of reality is to be found.
