Hans Silvester - More from the Natural Fashion series (2006-7)
Vanadinite - ACF mine, Mibladen, Morocco
Grey-black volcanic stone sculpture representing the Hindu elephant god Ganesha. He is seated on a platform of skulls; the soles of his feet are together, his right leg bent. Two of his four arms are down, two raised. His trunk is reaching into a dish of sweets held in his lower left hand; in his lower right hand he holds a broken tusk (?) and in his upper left hand a string of beads. The skulls and the seated pose with feet together are typical of Ganesha figures from the 13th century East Java kingdom of Singhasari.
- MIRALLES Fina, Relacions. relacions del cos amb elements naturals: cobriment del cos amb palla, 1975.
Fina Miralles (1950 Spain) studied in Barcelona from 1968 to 1972. Today, she lives and works in Cadaques. Fina Miralles explores the relationships between humans, nature and objects, and analyzes the transformation and alienation of natural objects when taken out of context. She works with different media, including painting, performance and video. She rediscovered painting again in the late 1970s.
Relacions. relacions del cos amb elements naturals: cobriment del cos amb palla(Relationships. Relationships of the body with natural elements. Covering the body with straw) belongs to a subsequent series in which the artist’s body is fused with a range of natural elements, establishing a full identification with it, forming a single unit of interchangeable values revolving around the eternal processes of destruction and rebirth of nature.
