ISIDRO BLASCO at Conde Duque, Madrid for Madblue Festival

April 8, 2021

For ‘No Place Like Home’  Isidro Blasco has reconfigured the interior and exterior corners of his house, as if experienced from a dream-like state. The reinterpretation depends on the subjective perception of the observer, resulting in a walkable architecture that also functions as a monumental sculpture. . No Place Like Home is an accumulation of elements that narrate a personal experience after a catastrophe shared by all of humanity.

Blasco has always been concerned about his environment to establish emotional relationships with the places he inhabits, experiences that he projects in his work. Blasco reflects on our way of looking at and contextualizing places, as well as the mediated way that we often have of seeing things, fragmenting and rebuilding, recycling materials and sensations that help us to recreate the architectural space, which is reinterpreted and depends on the subjective perception of the observer. On this occasion he focuses on the construction of an unstable-looking house, with a wooden structure, largely recycled and with some parts painted. It is an architecture that functions as a monumental sculpture, which forces the viewer to go through it, to experience its multifaceted condition. Blasco investigates the Babel fissure that declines into utopian disorder, as if it were a natural architecture, with anarchic potential but conceptually concentrated in its projection of thought and criticism of a kind of social demolition of the emotional.
