Four Stone Bodies

Four Stone Bodies
"Four Stone Bodies" was born of my fascination for La Alhambra, in Granada. For years I wanted to make her mine, to interpret her spi-ritual and historical worlds through her sensitive body, like a fleeting set. I worked Ihat body (rom inside and out, avoiding making it look like a human being. It is the story of a body that víbrales when in con-tact wilh the firmament, the centurias and also with the eye. When I finished "Fascinación" (Fascinationj La Alhambra, 1 was already working on the idea of doing that other body, this time masculina, as La Alhambra was female, which was "Espacios de Poder" ("Spaces of Power"), El Escorial of Klng Philip li, of puré, solld granite, closed olí, unmoved with the passing of time...once again, I avoided making it look like a human being.
And in order lo brealhe, so to speak, I had the idea of capturing God, an invisible God that gives us life and death, inside another body, perhaps nol the most beautiful of cathedrals, bul the most human: "La Catedral de Santiago" (The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela). I cali this third work "Dios" (God), almost irreverently and to the poinl of censure. And the ghosts of suffering people, demanding justice begin to appear. God is on high, inside a triangle, and below, only the footprints of the people who disappeared...wit-hout pity... remain in the marble. And in order to breathe, to feel free,
I searched for a refuge in another work of mankind, but...l got lost, perhaps emotional and almost irreverently: I got lost in the magical forest of "La Mezquita de Córdoba" (The Mosque of Córdoba), and so I called this body "La Búsqueda" (The Search). Man is like a sha-dow, like a blast of tire or light, like a spirit searching, and even the body becomes a confused, indefi-nite shape...Everything moves around the overwhelmed gaze, almost cowardly with admiration of mankind. Our gaze occasionally shatters before the magnificence of these forms conceived by tyrants: interpreting thern was like fighting battles with "dragons".
