In June in Bilbao, the Gau Zuria (White Night) festival featured 28 art installations that transformed the landscape of the Basque city. One was Cuerpo Gris (Gray Body), which took up the central garden of the Sacred Art Museum. The monumental site-specific piece unfolded in the cloister with winding organic forms – slinky and soft – around a water lily fountain. The snake-like body was composed of three parts and inflated to a height of 6 meters. Its spread over the courtyard and its cavities gave visitors playful fragmented views of the space.
Cuerpo Gris is an installation of Martillo Neumático designed and produced by Mon Cano, Iñigo Barrón, Jerome Lorente, and Roman Sost, with the collaboration of Inés Miño, Ana Moure, Cesar Fuertes, Tarino Cano, and Patricia Salazar.
