Pau Figueres : fish food

Drawing inspiration from an admiration of Warhol and Pollock, the Dance Diagram and the Oxidation Paintings, it takes performative action in painting to a place where the relationship between the body and the work of art take prominence, standing out for the decision to break with verticality, the work standing simply on the ground, and for the use of the body itself and its fluids to generate different images and shapes.

This gesture serves as a starting point to rethink a previous work based on which the “new technologies” are presented as intermediaries between the artist’s action, the medium, the material and the work. In this work, the artist’s body traces the lines that are later transferred by means of the technology to the medium, and the machine produces a series of repeated shapes that overlap, creating volumes that search for their place on the wall in a reversed manoeuvre.
