The bronze sculptures by the Spanish artist Jesús Curiá are intentionally ambiguous. The works covered with patina are reminiscent of ancient relics and do not indicate any explicit gender or ethnicity. Instead, the sculptures focus on inconspicuous figures that are separated by an abstract element or a negative space. Whether you’re signaling to someone else, marching downstairs or grabbing a dress with a skirt – the slender people are often on the move. These decontextualized movements offer a glimpse into the modern state as they combine the most surreal aspects of the experience with the real.
