1958. A postcard from 1958 of a snow covered landscape and the frozen lake of Puigcerdà; a replica of the 1958 Simca Presidence car on a 1958 roadmap. Set of mirrors and the inside ceiling in metallic green.
Jungfrau. A picture from a calendar of the Swiss mountain Jungfrau (‘young virgin’, in German). The castle, made of empty boxes of Swiss herb drops, Ricola, is where the young virgin lives. The landscape is completed using postcards of Swiss mountains and the silhouette of three hikers, suitors who begin to climb the mountain with the purpose of seducing the young virgin. Two trees mark the starting point, under the, somewhat incredulous and disturbing, watchful eye of a cow.
Y qué arte la del ciervo en su marco triangular. (How incredible the deer in his triangular frame.) Inspired by a verse of the song El Lejano Oeste (The Far West) by Sr. Chinarro: Peligro indefinido advertía una señal. Y qué arte la del ciervo en su marco triangular. (Unidentified danger warned the sign. How incredible the deer in his triangular frame.) Against a photo of a forest landscape, a clay deer, acrylic paint and horns made out of paper and cardboard.
Kreuzberge. A picture from a calendar of the Swiss mountain Kreuzberge (‘among mountains’, in German). Among hills and mountains, in a Swiss chalet made of empty boxes of Swiss herb drops, Ricola, flags have been hung in the trees because they are celebrating. We don’t get to see the celebration in the mountains, only the people who are coming down in the cable car and the cows grazing on the hill under the watchful eye of the cow dog, can see it.
Felina. A postcard of a pin-up in a leopard-print bikini, emerging from the palm trees in a feline manner and with one foot slightly in front of the other, as if she is about to test the water. Recreation of an oasis using six plastic palm trees and mirrors on cardboard.
