(Donostia – San Sebastián)
A sculptor from San Sebastian, Juan José Aranguren has participated in several highly educational artistic projects, such as Arteniño (’83-’90) or the subsequent Ikertze laboratories (’90-’99). Since then he has worked mainly in sculpture and film on his own and as part of groups, such as Zine Animau (visual/sound multi-screening facilities). He has participated in group and individual exhibitions and has won several prizes for his sculptures.
Scores of Silence
Scores of Silence is an attempt to represent a very important concept in sound language – silence represented through visual language. They are exercises in the disoccupation of the Flat Space through the Line (understood as a frontier, as a Continent). That’s why both the painted lines and those that are unmarked but remain present (real, one-dimensional lines without thickness) are so important, as they create different flat spaces, blank, empty, silent and at play with each other.
