Entre platos y zancos anda el juego
Counterbalance, harmony, equality, proportion, equanimity, symmetry, reasonableness… are some of the synonyms of the word balance. The meaning and the performativity of the words become catalysts for multiple reflections. Words that in the hands of an artist can provoke tangible or intangible objects.
Maria Gimeno shows two works, a video entitled Equilibrio IV (of stilts and plates) made in 2016. Dressed in a jacket and a tie, she climbs on stilts and tries to hold a pile of plates over her head. An unstable game, a sort of precarious choreography. Will she manage to find a balance between the creative drive and everyday life? Is there a place where art and home converge?
