Forat de l'Escala
27 - 30 September 2010
2 x 5 x 16 m
Selected for the group show Sense Títol ‘10, an annual select exhibition of the top prospective graduates from the Fine Arts Faculty of the University of Barcelona, Penique presented Forat de l’Escala.
The project gave meaning to an intangible space – the void of the stairwell. An inflatable over 16 meters high transformed this defunct space, over three flights of stairs, into a spectacle.
The inflatable took vertical, spiral form, delimited by the stairwell and the stairs themselves, to be experienced from both the inside and outside.
Sunlight during the day and artificial light at night generated a constant play of opaque red in varying intensities.
