“ESQUILOS LEJANOS” (“far away sheep bells”) is the name of the S.A.L. exhibition taking place in Zaragoza. It features a number of sheep bells and other objects, images and texts relating to them and/or their surroundings. All the bells have been either created or modified for this show by the artists represented by this collective.
Once again I used my wedding as inspiration for painting my sheep bells. Being confronted with the 'sheep bell' as an object, I thought of them as accessorise or jewellery for the sheeps. Having that in mind, I designed patterns to paint on them that made reference to the those of my vail and of my husband's tie that was worn at our wedding.
“ESQUILOS LEJANOS” was initiated by Carlos Cortes and has been developed in collaboration with S.A.L. It´ll be part of “TABLAS”, a series of exhibitions organized by E-MIGRE and sponsored by the AYUNTAMIENTO DE ZARAGOZA.
