Ambar

  • Ambar (2015), an installation by Cuban artist Osvaldo González Aguiar

Ambar, 2015
Site-specific installation

The action of wrapping something up is the starting point for this artwork. Taking this action to an absurd extreme, that is, wrapping up light, and make a parallel between the actual name  and meaning of amber itself as a material. It is said that amber is the stone that contains the sun, and this is the link that I establish by wrapping the space and creating an effect of amber colored light. It’s taking a simple, trivial act, into a poetic idea.
