Carnalitos (Arana)

2010

Iberico ham, concrete

31 x 47 x 29 cm

"I made ‘Carnalitos’, two sculptures of Miguel de Unamuno and Sabino Arana carved of legs of jamon iberico. The sculptures are a pair. These two Basque characters have a significant role in the Basque independence struggle but stood on two opposing political sides: moderation and nationalism. Carnalitos is an expression in Spanish for close friends as in “of the same blood”.

Working with a wide range of materials and approaches, Kasper Kovitz creates artworks that are more than a little difficult to describe. If there is an overriding issue that unites his current work, it would be the idea of the landscape, more specifically perhaps, the American West. Granted, Mr. Kovitz is not the first person to recognize the mythic character of the western United States, but his point of view is unique. Like a latter day Casper David Friedrich, Kovitz regards the West as an enormous metaphor for the human condition and possibly the final resting place of Western Civilization.
