Edu Tarín

by Begoña Prats

 

 

Jewellery could be understood in a different way for each person, but everybody will recognize some shapes, symbols and meanings. This project is based on appropriating the concept, idea and image of jewellery implanted in the collective memory of our cultural environment. I wanted to establish a link with the viewer questioning the function of the jewellery business today, and then reinterpret it in a critical current context.

The popular concept of traditional jewellery reborn in a new piece in which jewellery never could be understood as it is.

Repeating the same pattern, again and again, till it lose any sense as what we know for jewellery, reaching another point between what it is and what it should be, between the subjective and the collective.

 

 

 

 

 

The work of Edu Tarín has a special attraction, a hypnotic effect. His achievements spring from the identity of the original object to create a new being, in much the same way as cells come together to form living tissue …

The final appearance is puzzling and seems to stem from some kind of archaeological site or an amazing time capsule. His pieces seem to be full of stories waiting to be heard, patiently waiting in silence.

 

L’obra de Edu Tarín té un atractiu especial, hipnòtic. Aconsegueix desprendre’s de la identitat de l’objecte original per crear un nou ésser, com cèl.lules que s’uneixen per formar teixits vius…

El seu aspecte final és desconcertant i sembla sorgir d’algun tipus de jaciment arqueològic o d’una sorprenent càpsula del temps. Les seves peces semblen estar plenes d’històries, que esperant ser escoltades, esperen pacients en silenci.

    Es cierto, las piezas de Edu Tarín pasan de lo obvio, lo concreto, las referencias explícitas a la joyería tradicional y su entorno, para convertirse en realidades en sí mismas, en objetos y fomas autónomas y propias.

    Gracias Begoña Prats por tus palabras.
