1992 – Statu Quo

Statu Quo

Iron, bricks, concrete

As part of In Conformity with Logic, a show I made in my hometown that gathered many works shown later in various exhibitions, I made this upside-down house of liveable dimensions. It was a proper sculpture, with volume and balance issues, and with a sculptural weight. I am amazed now when I remember that the roof travelled through all the UK to be shown in different venues, in a tour called Five Voices from Spain. The walls were built locally. The sculpture was also shown at the Palacio de Velazquez in Madrid. The poster of the show in my hometown featured the picture with the long windows upside down, thus the house looked like hanging from the ceiling.
