EL PATRÓN FALOCÉNTRICO

(2014)

The modular artwork El Patrón Falocéntrico (The phallocentric pattern) represents an analogy to mechanisms of power and authority encoded as a repetitive pattern in cultures and societies - mostly invisible in its nature, yet omnipresent in everyday lives.

The pictorical pattern is created by repetitive use of one basic element - a simplified obelisk. This obelisk form has a function of the maximal representation of symbolic phallic power we can find in form of a commemorative vestige in almost every metropolis in the world.
