Rediscover the work of Jenaro
Pedro FlorentinFor his part, he recalled coinciding with Jenaro on several occasions and being in agreement with the time they come from, the time of drawing. “I was particularly working with Félix (Toranzos), facing Jenaro’s work but from a three-dimensional point of view. Although in architecture he worked three-dimensional, in art he was two-dimensional. We found some plans of a work that he did and we built a small model and that will be our contribution to this exhibition”.
Luis Elgue For his part, he indicated that at this moment there is a “rediscovery” of Pindu, although in his time it was not taken into account by the academy. “There is a rediscovery of the power and potential of his work, even with this idea of preserving his works, of preventing them from being demolished. There is a desire to value and expose what until now is seen as very underhanded, because Pindú is someone who has too many edges, ”he remarked.
Celso Figueredo, in turn, highlighted the plastic experience of Pindú. “For me it was a laboratory that experienced the formal”, he pointed out, to also underline his connection with nature. “It is very good for students to explore his work. We usually go to draw the Nautilus and other buildings”, he recounted about the experience of studying his work.
In this way, several visions inspired by Pindú come together for a third edition of this exhibition that was launched in 2019 at the Private Space of Art and continued in 2020 at Plaza Moiety.
