People who have saved this event:


In Greek mythology the word Pleiades refers to the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione. The contemporary usage of the term in the fields of astronomy and cosmology applies to a cluster of objects colliding in space.


Domenech utilizes the concept of Pleiades as structure and tool to organize a sequence of artworks in space, forming a pattern where all the pieces presented have either physical or theoretical connections. The works function not only as individual pieces, but also as integral components of a larger system.

The artist’s current output is rooted in ideas of system, surplus and contamination, mostly a result of a dedicated, investigative approach towards such topics. In this work, he has brought forth these notions to shape a series of pieces that examine formal connections that surfaced during fabrication. It is at this stage where a clear understanding forms on how materials affect and define the trajectory of an object.
