ART-O-RAMA

June Crespo - David Bestué
26-28.08.2016

The Green Parrot presents a duo exhibition with two Spanish artists that question and expand the notions of sculpture. 
June Crespo’s work relates two different planes: the imaginary, oneiric and symbolic with the material and sensible. This is possible through the gathering of objects that she compiles such magazine covers and book illustrations that act substituting dream scenes. The structural relations of the works, their contrasts and other physical qualities are associated to affects, physical sensations and a way of thinking that does not look to find a rational or logical sense. David Bestué is an artist interested conceptually in the language of sculpture, architecture and engineering. He subtly intervenes public and domestic scenarios, creating situations that question our ways of looking. The photographic series presented at Art-o-Rama are made of almost impossible sculptures, objects that don’t last more than a couple of seconds and they can only be documented by an image of the past.
June Crespo (Pamplona, 1982) has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country (2005). She has participated in international artistic residencies such as Iaspis (Stockholm, 2014) and De Ateliers ( Amsterdam 2015-2017).
