I met Matthias Kauderer in Barcelona over the summer of 2017, The similarity in our artistic processes and our related passion for sculptures brought me to invite him for a one-month residency in Pujo Studio. He responded to my invitation with positivity, and we found ourselves working alongside one-another during October 2018.

In the studio - we have produced a critical space for debates and discussions, and for this reason, we invited local artists and curators to take part in those events. During this time we have traveled to the volcanic mountains in Olot and collected natural materials such as rocks and wood. Back in the city, we worked in the same space, but each one focused on producing their own encounters, with his own materials; Matthias with ready-mades, and me, with industrial material such as cement and manufactured wood.

Anteclimatic is the result of these natural and industrial encounters: when the sculptures perform with an Ante-Climactic behavior.
