  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    This piece is a three-dimensional replica of the Victory Arc of Madrid.

    The original monument was erected between 1950 and 1956 to honor the triumph of the coup troops against the Republican forces in the capital.

    The sculptures of this series are part of the Victoria exhibition project, an artistic installation that reinterprets this monument to try to think about the transcendence of certain representations of the recent past in our present. The exhibition is made up of sculptures, objects, serigraphs and documentary photography.

    This symbol of power of the Francoism is represented in a small format - as a "souvenir" - the quadriga is composed of fatigued horses and the goddess Minerva sitting and indifferent. A shutter is added that closes it as a visual metaphor of secrecy, silence and abandonment as signs of a collective trauma pending resolution.
    In a nod to the pop serialization, the walls are dyed in different colors and some are graffiti.

Hugo Orlandini

Cuba Born in: 1974
Translation in progress

Hugo Orlandini is inclined to think of art as a transformational, creative and political energy that has sensorial, optical and mental consequences. A door that grants us access to new channels of perception in order to submit accepted systems to new questions.

This is the conceptual direction in which he tries to develop his artistic practice, chiefly by means of the installations and sculptures born out of information, of images published in the mass media, of architectural elements and objects of popular culture that he chooses because of their representative and symbolic possibilities.

During the creative process he applies recontextualisation strategies and games of scale, and thus transform objects. Making the works, he enjoys experimenting with different materials and evoking new representations.
