From SITE Gallery:
“17,000 or so years ago in Altamira, in Northern Spain, prehistoric man created these magnificent and now famous cave paintings. Along with early carvings made out of animal bones or mammoth ivory these paintings and similar ones discovered in Lascaux or Chauvet can be considered the origin of art as we know it today.
We have proposed to our participating artists to sit back and picture themselves as cave artists, but with the entire array of modern technology at their disposal. They will try to explore and tie into this ”primal urge to create” that compelled our ancestors to become curious about the human existence and to transform their observations into tangible images.
As a fitting background, the architecture of the Silos represents an urban cave environment that provides a near authentic experience with its 34 individual art spaces, dark passage ways, mysterious side chambers and dramatic scale shifts.
