“At the end, the only thing that’s left are interpersonal relationships.”


Leria is a set of faces with which Arturo Álvarez continues to explore human communication. Wealth is found in miles of years of creation, uses, improvements, disuse, conventions and parallel corrections in the development of human intelligence. The language can be used in the colloquial, loving and fraternal way, but also as a means of management, separation, confrontation or deception. The author wanted, with this new look, to focus on the friendly and friendlier uses that can be established in conversations, perhaps, an approach to the other, to take into account in times of convulsion.

Arturo Álvarez’s new art proposal presents three modalities. Leria in a table format, is a piece made of stainless steel mesh that is integrated into a platform that rotates with the strength and magnetism of some magnets. Illuminated by LED, this piece casts a human face on the wall that, activating the magnets, turns on itself. Leria as pendant piece are 5 pieces that hang on a thread and talk to each other through the light. The lightness and shape of these faces means that with a light breeze, the projection is filled with dynamism and movement. This work, in its third form, is a composition where the faces are integrated with the light source, causing the faces to be projected on the floor and ceiling.
