Anna Talens

My objects and installations are encounters, dialogues between materials and elements previously detached in the world. The resulting identity is a combination of an initial functionality and the new sense that fills it out, adding a fresh symbolic, poetic and existentialist meaning.

My creative decisions are based on the combination of two principles:
the use of repetitive manual work and the reapplication of objects already existing in the world (objet trouvé).

I recover traditional and primitive craft processes, using artistic resources such as repetition, arbitrariness and accumulation, by means of a minimalist disposition distorted by the presence of sensuality in materials, forms and colours.

I am always in search of the beauty of imperfection in objects altered by the passage of time or the manufacturing process…

For me, nature is also an endless source of beauty.

The outcome is unique pieces that connect the observer with something recognisable as well as strange; thus turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.

All in all, I tell stories about the complexity of human existence. I share the poetry of simplicity, of what is rustic but beautiful, encouraging the contemplation of an object almost as sacred.

In the collection I have created for OneSixOne, I merge the figures of the Aurea circle and the symbol of infinity; two geometric patterns that speak about eternity and the existentialist philosophy built upon the idea that there is no beginning and no end. They both symbolise, as well, the invisible connection amongst all things in the world.

Basing my selection on basic colours and tactile sensations, I have searched for silent beauty and timeless elegance. Behind this collection, echoes from my former creations can be heard: gold craft works based on the Japanese technique “kintsugi”, metallic crocheting by hand, endless pin fields which invite you to touch… in short, the recreation of a dreamlike world that speaks about life and the common mysteries of any human being’s existence.
