“Origen”, ELIURPI, from February 28 to March 10, 2024

ART U READY presents "Origen", an exhibition in which ELIURPI shows his most conceptual art. Textile and light installations with a story that arises from the origin, the natural and traditions. An ode to traditional materials brought to an aesthetic and pure design.

ART U READY returns to ARCO week for the eighth year. The artistic duo ELIURPI, formed by Elisabet Urpí and Nacho Umpiérrez return to Madrid with a new exhibition in which their proposal becomes more conceptual. An ode to traditional materials taken to an aesthetic and pure design. From simplicity to sophistication without further ornamentation. An idea that recalls and makes us reflect on the beauty that lies in simplicity, when it is honest. Where there is honesty, there is truth.

Pieces and objects with shapes, shades and natural colors that will revolve around the same idea, to elevate nature and traditions by themselves, with delicacy, respect and frankness.

This will be the artists’ third solo exhibition with ART U READY in Madrid, which will also feature a very special collaboration with Studio Bañón. An artisan furniture studio and workshop located in Madrid with a tradition of several generations that are characterized by creating timeless “haute couture” pieces. Maximum quality and execution with a timeless design. Craftsmanship by flag that shares values with ELIURPI and for this reason the artists will create a unique piece with Bañón, which will be presented in the exhibition.

This exhibition seeks to transform the origin into concept, to change the look. A contemporary expression of nature that transcends the ordinary to the extraordinary. A narrative of beauty in harmony between art and design with a common vision, to reclaim the essence.

ELIURPI’s textile and light installations with a story that arises from the origin, the natural and traditions, which will dialogue in space with the best craftsmanship of Bañón.

ELIURPI’s art stands out for its search, through craftsmanship and design, for another way of creating with honesty and providing “spaces” of beauty.

Regarding the location where the exhibition will be held, it will be private and secret and can be visited under registration and by appointment, with limited capacity. It will be in a central and exclusive space of The Sibarist portfolio, which will only be revealed to those who register.

In this way it will be possible to get to know both the work and the artists, who will accompany us throughout the week, in an intimate and very personal way.

Dates: from February 28 to March 10. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
