Attua Aparicio + Ifö Center = Push-ups
Attua Aparicio grew up in Spain but is based in London. The exhibition “PUSH-UPS” presents ceramic works created during her four-month stay as an artist-in-residence at Ifö Center, a cultural center in Bromölla, Sweden. The residency became a period of goal-oriented exercises, rather like an athlete does push-ups. She uses the word “push-ups” to describe her works literally, as the clay pushes its way upwards. Her desire is to challenge herself – to push both the materials and the technique up to a higher and more complex level than she has used before.
