Paula Anta . Spain
My fascination with the sculptural potential of different kinds of found objects led me to create my own landmarks, signalling this time a very specific location: my own place, my own village, my own territory – in short, my own landscape. In the series, these landmarks of my own become mixed up with those built by the locals. Together they all become like mythical beings, and although they appear isolated, a relationship is created between them, a history.
