18 Mar MORPHO – ANIBAL CATALAN 🗓 🗺
Morpho is a sculptural installation, especially conceived for the architectural space of Antara Polanco and developed in collaboration with Arte Abierto.
In Morpho, the Mexican artist Anibal Catalan takes as a reference the natural forms of the tiger dragonfly and the colors of the painting Yellow Landscape (1908) by the Russian artist Kasimir Malevich, to create a structure that allows the viewer to relate sensitively and spatially with the place that inhabits and travels. The side walls use the same shapes and colors in composition, creating a dialogue between the two-dimensionality of the murals and the three-dimensionality of the installation.
Morpho opens to the public in the main access tunnel of Antara and will be temporarily from Thursday March 23 to May 31, with free access.
