of women, bodies and places
The first exhibition of CLC Arte, of women, bodies and placesIt brings together the work of Amparo Carbonell, Professor of Sculpture at Valencia Polytechnic University and academic at the San Carlos Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Valencia, and exhibits “conceptual and formal reflections on the vital processes associated with women, the processes in which life is involved”. and business comes together,” she said.
“A critical look at the oppression and inequality suffered by women preserves three sources: the symbolic expression of their sexuality (fertility), the manifestation of female anatomy (venus), the magical-religious symbolic attitudes (goddess)”.
The sample was developed as a “transverse view” that transforms into “the corresponding curves, waves of expansion, from which the work begins from the inner experience with respect to the surrounding space”.
In the gallery space, works from the 80s to the present can be found together. «Throughout this process of re-creating the body, two forms have persistently dominated all representations and configurations: the belly and the silhouette.body and earth, navel as center and its profile as horizon, embodied in the image of the horizon as a possibility of eternity and the sense of infinity materialized in fertility as the guarantee of the infinite in life. Not finite in landscape,” Carbonell pointed out.
Installation in the last piece made in 2022 In the center of all distancesConstructed with mud and light, the artist brings a dune of ceramic cores such as “islands of water, fragments of the sea, horizons that limit the world, the border of the idea of a planet. The navel is in the body, the moon is in the sky, the center of the universe. The fact of belonging to a place and a culture. Awareness of boundaries and otherness. At the center of all distances is this land, love it then…” added the artist.
