'Ausentes', by Ester Gandía

1 Vote

The young Spanish artist Ester Gandía (1990), who resides halfway between Spain and Mexico, is the winner of the VI Female Contest of Artistic Installations that the Can Prunera modernist museum convenes for its spiral staircase.

The installation, which will be put up from March 9 to May 12, is developed on the basis of the concept of counting and visually translating the 1,139 women killed by gender violence in Spain from 1999 to December 2018, in order to remember them and honor them.

In Ausentes, 1,139 socks knotted together at the ends hang from the roof structure to the ground floor of the building, creating a sort of translucent skin curtains. At the base of the installation, occupying the stairwell, rests a circle of dried flowers.
