Ícaro Maiterena (ES)

Earth, water, air, fire, ether. Kneading delicately. Hitting, a solenoid-like gesture, a vortex which generates pleaded telluric textures. An active volcano: immersing in FeCl3, a blowtorch, reduction firing. An object which is tangible, mineral, vegetable, and animal, and bears the imprint of lived experiences. Alterity – a symbiosis of unique features to attempt to understand our place in the greater scheme of things.

Ícaro Maiterena is the winner of the 2022 Officine Saffi Award awarded by the Bruckner Foundation. He will be presenting a short film together with some of his pieces at Halles de la Fonderie.
