Lifted Romanticism is a cyclic installation that starts with the reference to the creation with a transparent waterbed, where the spectator can walk, lay, dance, feel, "wave" together, ... It embraces joy and experience by touching almost in a spiritual/ religious and dreamy way, where moving also becomes a sensual feeling of sharing performed by the public. In the course of the installation we find Decadence and Gold on the right wall, which is made by mixing gold leaf and resin and it results in the chemical reaction of the oxidation, presenting a green and blue textured surface, almost organic. On the left, Dissent of Your Body in Fragments represents a painful feeling experience suffered in a body, where sharpened polyester resin and fiberglass talk about broken romanticism and tears in a fragile and dangerously heavy sculpture. The piece is fragmented in three and hung together, and it's around 80kg hanging above the plastic and delicate waterbed to create a tension between materials. And at the far left corner, almost hidden, we find Dancing with the Death, a ceramic piece that presents a concave shape blown away from the wall. Its interior contrasts the dark burnt colour with the alive and organic green outside. It is like a dangerous dance in a delicate and open position’s sculpture that dwells in the concept of the death to close the cycle. All the installation creates a tension between materials and feelings, contrasting the fragile, sharpened and oxidized resin pieces with the plastic waterbed, constantly felt under your feet during the journey. Also Outdoors, we find the sculpture Come Through, made as an invitation to walk through it and to the show.
