Avocados

stone, plaster

2019

 

Two sculptures closely related to each other thanks to an avocado-like shape;

both are linked by a connection constraint, on an ideal and a formal level.

In the Aztecs’s language, the word «ahuacatl», from which «avocado» is derived, means «testicle».

The native populations of south-central America have chosen for this fruit a name that evocatively suggests.

Note: The sculpture was part of the exhibition Man, Woman and in-between at Vaska Emanuilova Gallery's - Sofia City Art Gallery (BG)
