Qué ?! (What ?!) - Eivissa 1984

Qué ?! (What ?!)- Quid - one is a ephemeral piece made in 1984. Composed by a torch that writes the word Qué ?! (What ?!) registered in a approx circle 6m. of diameter, it burned in intimate ceremony until the dusk disappearing its ashes during the night. Only they were left some photographs catalogued in 1985 in the catalogue of a great national exhibition of Catalan Sculpture that was exhibited during that year in different localities from pais.









Question! : Answer What...,

How..., essential questions, whose answers vanishes in the to air, whose answers finds the man in Nature: his own discourse. Discern..., when art - the poem- stops the permanent flow of life, brings an to answer,

AT this instant, to little death, sublimates instant, brings an to answer: petrified thought: petrified emotion. Water, earth, stone, sand, to air, fire, the four elements and metal, the five energies. The artist arrange the world to understand and explain himself.

And his artifice, his poem, his work, continues taking part of nature in permanent change.

Life is memory and Paradox: the Energy that flows is petrified memory, language. Petrified language: beginning of civilisation, the construction of life in community. Memory is foundation of transformation and progress of history and all this construction is nature and change.

Ephemerial is eternal. Perpetual is change.

Albert Girós - 2004
