Model in 1/10 scale

ORIOL RIUS

 
This work is opposed to the obscurantism that has dominated the thinking about the days on the past, the last hemeres or postrimetries.

The megalithic galleries are transformed into a clear vision of the end of life, without fears or occultisms. The death looks us face to face; and atavistic symbols of religion, alchemy and powers join us as a cruel blow.

Alpha Is Omega wants to express that the beginning melts in the end; that existing is an act by itself. It is not a path where we go, but a cry and dance in the middle of the square (I have already worked on this n the exhibition  Traps for a Square). Thus the curve that is manifested as a frontal alpha is revealed as an omega when it is looked from the side galleries.

Here I present a model in 1/10 scale. The work should be 13.5 by 8.1 meters and have a height of 2 meters. The curve Alpha Is Omega, which hangs in the middle of the galleries, is made of neon, 40 x 40 x 80 cm.
   
   
                                       
   
                         
   
             
 
  The great megalithic slabs become transparent and turn into a farewell of atavistic symbols of earth, water, fire, Pisces and balances of the zodiac, crosses, rising stars, apocalyptic eyes, sickles and tails...
