Arena sin Continente


Marisol's installation titled 'Arena sin Continente' (Sand without a Continent) is based on a poem written by Maria José Echevarria, which deals with the human condition and feelings of pain and bereavement which perhaps leaves one feeling like the sand of the title. This consists of three broken mirrors with some piece of anatomy bursting forth from the centre. The words of the poem in Maria Jose's own voice can be seen and heard on a TV which is also part of the installation. The other element is an unbroken mirror with a hand holding out miniature books with the words and pictures from the work printed on them. And to complete the installation there is an island of sand on the floor with broken mirrors with text embedded in the sand. The island is surrounded by black paper boats like a blockade around the island.
