Nom de guerre

Nom de guerre (2007), is a piece specifically conceived for the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao’s institutional context. The piece consists of two elements: a metal container standing on a concrete block filled with fuel that burns constantly as an improvised cauldron and a vertical ventilation pipe the museum requires to evacuate the smoke. This work, simple in its craftsmanship, yet complex in its condensation of meaning, forays into three fundamental fields of significance: fire as a symbolic element, sculpture as an exercise in critical representation and contemporary social angst.
