It is ELIURPI’s favorite work in the exhibition. “It is the most special because it conveys the background of the show very well. It is one of the hats that we usually wear in the context of fashion, but we have transformed it into an art object,” explains Elisabet.
The rest of the artistic works flow from this concept. All of them are based on the principles of the Bauhaus school. Almost as if it were a game, visitors to the conservatory try to define the limits of craftsmanship until it becomes a painting or a sculpture.
No one is indifferent to the copper, reddish and black tones that predominate in a palette outlined in pure, geometric lines. Earth colors and authentic materials, such as wicker, straw, cotton thread or rayon, which share their origin in the fashion signature of the artist couple like a circle that closes again.
“The designer is the archer who aims at the target (the problem) with the desire to hit the center, the place of compromise and balance among the many factors of a project. The artist is another type of archer who consciously shoots the arrow outside the range, with the will to go looking for it in order to know what lies beyond the limits of what is possible.” Martín Azúa, artist and designer.
“We are always creating pieces and working on several at the same time.” The elaboration process is slow. After the original design idea, each material requires time between each step, and the process can take weeks.
“We like the idea that it ages over time, that it takes a natural course, that the straw and the rage change color in the process. We think it’s very beautiful. A message that builds bridges between art and fashion to achieve model sustainability.
For the sound of the exhibition we had exceptional partners such as Bang & Olufsen, a Danish company with 95 years of tradition of emblematic and iconic audiovisual equipment. Leaders both for its technological quality and commitment to innovation, which achieves the best sound on the market thanks to its continuous research, and for its timeless design with fine materials and craftsmanship. We enjoyed their elegant musical heritage pieces to accompany our exhibition with the best sound and a playlist created by ART U READY for the occasion on Spotify.
For the inauguration we enjoyed impeccable catering by Bechic and organically grown wines from VERUM wineries.
