Abrazo (Hug) is a piece that leaves space for contemplation, silence. They are bodies in a state of stillness, image, of infinite vision, appreciating every detail in its 360º. A duo represented by Natalia G. Muro and Nerea Martínez M. two sculptures, surrounded by a soundscape that accompanies us throughout the journey, loaded with images that evoke emotions wrapped in infinite hugs that we experience throughout life. Muddy bodies that sculpt each other, transforming with each gesture, leaving a mark in their wake. No hurry. A metaphor of the relationship, of the bond of friendship like a clay sculpture that is sculpted throughout life, with its encounters and disenchantments. The idea of sculpting, transforming and the mark they leave behind, make Abrazo an intimate and emotional space with elegant work.
A painted painting, full of delicacy, meticulous and elegant details. An infinite atmosphere.
