A PESAR DE LA AUSENCIA DE TÍTULO, Berlin 2014

Despite the absence of title, as it is said of an untitled work, but also literally: Weighing the lack of title.

A man finds a second birth thanks to dumbbells (pesas in Spanish) of 10.5 kilos by clinging to them and them clinging to him.
Like a wavy line under the sky, a wave of steel is transformed into a feather as much as in weight – echo of the world’s loads: an anchor, a bone, the branch of a tree, a raft, a wig, weapons: a shield and a sword, a fishing rod, the stick of a tightrope walker, a bench, the stick of a majorette, a sceptre or a crown, the replacement of his arms, bull horns, a moustache in the Dali way…

Despite the absence of title, evokes the Calvary journey of this citizen Sisyphus who travels through his years. A primitive, dirty and sacred urban act, inhabited by ancestral, pictorial, sporting gestures and the reminiscences of our daily tasks that can sometimes give us wings.

Music: Without Shades – artist: ZAGAR
