Ana Navas /Interhistoricity/
Presenting a series of “unfolded” sculptures
The silhouette of the two-dimensional pieces is determined by patterns for garments that could cover iconic sculptures of modern art or domestic objects. The material selected for these patterns is a combination of industrial textiles that mimic manual gestures and canvases on which the artist has manually captured that exact same gesture.
Ana Navas conceives her practice as the tracing of an object's family tree, looking for its ancestors and following influences. Her work questions how art is perceived outside its own context, searching for overlaps and transformations between disciplines such as design and "high" and "popular" culture.
Glass pieces in the presentation were produced at MAKE Eindhoven.
