The Darwin vs Darwin, explores the Nietzschean abyss between the world of animals and the realm of the divine with a strained rope between them to represent the human who eternally binds them together. The project is based on a series of hyper-realistic objects named “Shellers” and are inspired from aesthetic research into two epistemic (Knowledge) ideas on human progress, first, Plato with his argument of the immortal soul, and second, Darwin with his Positivist theory of the body and natural phenomena. Additionally, the interaction between the Shellers and the surrounding space is analogous to the topic of Heidegger’s metaphysics of space:
“Sculpture structures are bodies. Their matter, consisting of different materials, is variously formed. The forming of it happens by demarcation as setting up an inclosing and excluding border. At this point space comes into play. Becoming occupied by the sculptured structure, space receives its special character as a closed, breached and empty volume. A familiar state of affairs, yet puzzling.”
The aesthetic style transcends perceptions in time and space by referencing Renaissance pastoralism of the landscape with antique architecture melding into the lights of a contemporary cityscape at night.
The second part of this project is set in Barcelona and the picturesque suburbs of Catalonia. Philosophical motives no longer prevail in the subject, giving way to nature with its own symbolic concentrate. Humans/Shellers are in a situation of chiasm, unable to define the direction of their instinct and further geographical movement.
