Le Dame Dame is delighted to exhibit a 3metres sculpture by the winner of Pilar Juncosa and Sotheby’s Biennial Prize, Patricia Mato-Mora. This sculpture makes part of the sculptural group HORROR VACUI: an ode to natural growth patterns, particularly those found in submarine  settlements. 

About

To create ​ Horror Vacui, Patricia has taken the module of the Roman amphora as a formal starting point  and then re­imagined this industrial module of Antiquity as the base material to generate these natural  growth sculpture. The original Roman Amphorae have been digitally appropriated and modified, and contra­moulds were CNC milled, to emulate the recursive growth patterns of underwater formations. With an academic background in architecture, I have integrated my knowledge of 3D modeling and fabrication, with more traditional craft methods, particularly those found in industrial production, such as mould­making and slip­casting.

During 2016, I researched set design and building methods. These allowed me to develop a modular system that, once adhered with the colourful resin, becomes one single piece.

 

EXHIBITION from the 4th October to 10th October 2016
