Jacobo Castellano

Jacobo Castellano’s most important source of inspiration for art is his own story. He uses this as an example by means of materials and memories and produces sculptures and installations full of autobiographical and art historical references. The way the sculptures are reconstructed from the remains of old objects give it a special atmosphere. Time, ephemerality, memories - for Jacobo Castellano each object tells a story: his works demonstrate something melancholic and at the same time a kind of lightness of being, as an air of nostalgia from bygone days seems to surround his pieces that reach from sculptures and collages, to installations photographs. Memories from the past, woven into everyday objects, furniture and toys, have always played a key role in his creations, emphasizing his Andalusian roots, where tradition and religion still cast a shadow over everyday life.
