Spanish Artist Transforms Everyday Objects into Surreal Sculptures

Spanish artist Jaime Pitarch sets an unusual twist on regular materials for his cutting-edge artworks. Based in Barcelona, Pitarch is falsifying household items for many years, transforming wire coat hanger or your common chair into a modern sculpture.

By re-contextualizing these items, he asks viewers to re-evaluate their functions and how we connect to them.

There is something poetic and melancholy about these contemporary sculptures as if seeing them in a new light enhances the absurdity of our attachment to them. With the manipulations of Pitarch, they are not useful things, but pieces to admire for their type. Reassembled like puzzle pieces, the sculptures that are progressive request us to reconsider the regular materials we surround ourselves with.
