Description

Spanish creative studio LAS ÁNIMAS launches KERU, a collection of unique pieces made of solid resin. These sculptural vessels follow the creative path of the Spanish artistic duo, in a process that mixes material experimentation and traditional ways of crafting. Each one of these totems has been designed inspired by ancestral cultures, hand-made through a lost mould technique and patterned using a palette of acid tones that decontextualize them.

Their reflections, translucency, and melted look resemble that of blown glass, but it’s in the volume, textures, and the craftsmanship involved in their manufacture, where the value, charm, and magic of these artworks lies. The KERU vessels are conceived as functional talismans. Their energy flows from their duality between art and usage, shamanic power and objectual reality. Each one of the shapes and colour combinations is unique, unrepeatable, and limited to a numbered series of 8 units.

LAS ÁNIMAS is the Spanish creative studio founded by Trini Salamanca and Pablo Párraga, based in the southern city of Seville, Spain. Increasingly grabbing international attention, their work has a strong symbolic and mystic feature and runs along the diffuse boundaries between art and design. The language of LAS ÁNIMAS is based on minimalist, geometric, and iterative patterns where materials-shapes-textures experimentation leads to a retro-futuristic aesthetics and deeply evocative iconography.

About the designer


LAS ÁNIMAS

LAS ÁNIMAS is a creative studio based in Seville (Spain). Their work includes symbolic, tribal and esoteric elements, and arises from the expressive need of sharing an aesthetic universe; a dreamlike parallel world full of visions; of architectural references, both historical, fictional and coming from images underlying popular culture; hardwired to the unconscious and collective memory. Using a language of geometric and iterative patterns, they experiment with materials, shapes and textures, to develop an iconography of retro-futuristic, transgressive, ceremonial and deeply evocative aesthetics. As a result of this altered field of view where sumptuousness and magic gather, high sensory impact pieces of ceremonial character emerge. Their creative universe encompasses references as distant as Science Fiction, tribal cultures, distortion of reality, cybernetics, duality, experimental electronic music or architectural brutalism; an imaginary that links with the elements of their personal environment, readapted and projected from their very own insight. Their creative body includes pieces of furniture in limited editions, sculptures, interventions and unique objects; everything designed and created by themselves; a symbolic universe full of emotions that lead to a spiritual mood lost in time. Works conceived as totems that challenge functionality and form: latches that open secret trapdoors to higher states of consciousness, connected with mythology, ancient ceremonies, imaginary rites, sacred symbols and spirituality. Along this process, the conception, creation and evolution of each work resembles a ritual of exploration, of alchemy, of experimentation at their studio / laboratory with materials and forms until the pieces finally emerge. Their personal concerns join the influx of Seville, Andalusia and Spain; Its culture, art, folklore, technical processes and artistic tradition are present, mixed, assembled, fused in one way or another in each one of their pieces.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
