ART & FOOTBALL
This page is part of the Ekkono training in values through football initiative. The objective is to contribute to the interpretation of contemporary problems through the link between Football and Art, offering different possibilities of reading and understanding this sport in the context of today’s society.
We will be uploading and sharing art works linked to football made by artists, with the aim of creating a «collection» of references with which to promote thinking and reflecting on this sporting practice, from different disciplines: illustration, video, sculpture, painting, etc.
ARTIST: DARÍO ESCOBAR (Multidisciplinary artist. 1971 – . Guatemala)
TITLE: Obverse & Reverse
Darío creates abstract artworks with sports elements, usually already used, with the aim of giving them a new cultural value, while making us reflect on their industrial production and mass repetition.
In this installation of hanged used balls, Darío seeks a visually aesthetic and pleasing work that helps us change our point of view as consumers and manufacturers.
