In architecture as well as in art, spolia is the reuse of existing materials or elements, for economic or symbolic reasons. Consciously included in a work, it simultaneously conveys and reinvents a legacy.
From a formal point of view, Ovide plays with the viewer, frames and directs his/her vision, playing with its components. The object pays a tribute to Eduardo Chillida's sculptures, opposing fullness to emptiness, and transparence to opacity. In its center, the antique marble core brings a smooth contrast.
