Costa da Morte
- Cinta Vidal (Cinta Vidal Agulló)
Cinta Vidal trained at the Massana School in Barcelona and she started to work at a very early age at the Taller de Escenografía Castells. Hence her brushstroke and taste for detail.
Cinta usually represents disconnections with the world around us, parallel realities reflected by suppressing the gravitational dimension. Her work is a reflection on the order and disorder of elements, worlds and ideas. Stories that coexist without crossing over each other.
“To understand this destabilising balance is a challenge.”
In this occasion Cinta left us a specifically designed mural for Carballo, “Costa da Morte”, which literally merged with this wall and in which it portrays certain predominant features of Carballo’s own architecture, such as the houses with galleries, houses with tile roofs and the region’s peculiar granaries, which make direct reference to some of the town’s buildings.
As with all her previous work, she has used architecture as a key narrative element but in this occasion she has introduced lesser-used elements in her artistic career, such as mountains and cliffs, which turned upside down and lacking in gravity, acquire a special expressiveness and vertigo.
