⋅ Stars and Stones

Stars and Stones is a miscellaneous series of drawings which analyses the gesture of stone-throwing as a projection into the future, an act of resistance, and a ludic activity merge with an investigation on the etymology of desire (L. de siderium: from the stars).

A consultation with experts in Greek, Arabic and Medieval astronomical maps, led to the trace of a disappeared version of a non-canonical Hercules (Greek interpretation of the kneeling figure constellation) launching stones, opening the space for a rereading of the notions and desires we project onto the stars.

Thanks to Jordi Pàmias Massana.
