José Ángel Merino


JJosé Ángel Merino made this aluminium sculpture called “Explosión de vacío” in 2010, with which he obtained the Antón Grant for Sculptural Creation in 2009.

“Explosión de vacío” is a tribute to Antón and, by extension, to all those whose life was cut short by the war.

The piece materialises in a cube that has multiple holes, thus reproducing the idea of an explosion that occurs inside, destroying the material with which the piece was made.
