The Castell de Benedormiens in Castell d'Aro presents the temporary exhibition Absences and Crowds by Olga Andrino (Ávila, 1959).

Olga Andrino has a degree in Fine Arts from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, specializing in painting. She later discovered her passion for sculpture, which led her to pursue a doctorate in this discipline. It is for this reason that the material aspect of his work and the volume acquire great prominence.

This exhibition exhibits a selection of works from the most representative series organized by the artist from 2001 to the present. The exhibition begins with Caja s (2001-2002), a series in which the box becomes a repository where everything fits: a receptacle that stores countless possible existential situations and, at the same time, lived experiences filtered by memory and the memory.

With the series " Otros espacios ", Andrino makes visible the internal transformation of this material, rehearsing different structures and new appearances. The volumetric treatment in the series Multitudes (2009-2013) should be highlighted, as in this series the painter chooses textural and bodily resources to emphasize the incommunicado nature of human beings. According to Conxita Oliver, a member of the International Association of Art Critics, “these are vulnerable and fragile constructions, made from waste and remnants of our industrial society and which deny the formalism and traditionally understood matter. They contain, in themselves, the modification and the metarmorphosis that the passage of time implies ”.

As for his most recent production, entitled Todo se desvanece (2019-2022), it would come to represent an experience of loss and mourning. The paper comes out of the picture to reach the frame: frames that frame the void, the disappearance, the emptiness and the nothingness that remains, Oliver points out.

The exhibition can be visited until 3 July on weekends and public holidays from 11:00 to 13:00 and from 17:00 to 20:00.
