(Creation Residence - Associate Project 2019 )L'animal a l'esquena (Celrà) From 12/08/2019 to 17/08/2019 Sira Aymerich, Pep Aymerich What Pep Aymerich’s (Sarrià de Dalt, 1962), artistic projects have in common, apart from their diversity and scale, is the presence of the body as a reference point, the precise judgement of the measure of possibilities and reactions of the material he works on, the rigour, conciseness and quality of the finished product. As a craftsman working with wood who is committed (in all meanings of the word) to creating a world with his hands, his work becomes a liturgy for the gaze. In all his creations a profound need for transcendence can be seen, a constant questioning of the conflict of man confronted with the fragility of his existence.
In “The Place? to be ourselves”, Aymerich makes perfect wooden replicas of his own body and that of his daughter Sira, a performer and dancer, in the form of marionettes. This is an experience that highlights the gregarious nature of the human species.
Residential project at IF Barcelona - Catalan Puppet Theatre Biennale, in collaboration with L’animal a l’esquena and Festival Ciclope.
