DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
Mala Sangre is born from an emotional perspective and personal experience where the artist experiences changes, migratory movements towards an indefinite place. He questions himself in his constant battle of Trans – formation, where to be part of something. Mala Sangre is built from pieces that start from a square pattern to be defined and in a kind of “moulage”, where it tries to mold itself in the pieces, not being that its definitive form, rethinking and questioning again – giving an answer to its main square form.
The book “RODCHENKO AND POPOVA Defining Constructivism”, is the main source of inspiration for the BAD BLOOD project, from which it abstracts, illustrates and questions – the social function of art – and in form – the relationship between the useful and the beautiful, between order and movement, between the void and the line… -, and approaches the answers braided by Rodchenko and Popova.
Ecoleather (faux leather), tulle, felted wool, tartan, transparent plastic, rib knot fabric, webbing straps and bias tapes to help intertwine and mark construction lines. Torzal threads.
