Description

‘Apetito’ is a dense collection of concepts. A pile of earthen spoons on the edge of a field, a line of red cord indicating the positions to be sown in a freshly ploughed field and on the land Yendell labours. Using a mattock to scoop out the earth, she plants the spoons one by one, each is situated swiftly and carefully in position, sentinel like the spoons hold their position. A final sifting of earth and the red cord rewound; the work is completed. As night falls, Yendell places a spoon on her shoulder and looking forwards walks out of the screen to some other place. ‘Appetito’: women’s complex and subtle relationship with food, its production, its preparation and consumption from distant time ‘til now made visible in all its layers of subtlety.

About Lesley Yendell

Hi, I am an English sculptor based in Spain. I have worked on various projects around Europe. My work draws both from the domesticated landscape of the Penedes, and everyday domestic objects. It concentrates on the transformation of these objects and introduces new criteria to value not only their aesthetic effect but also their communicative power.

    Me ha emocionado Apetito.
    Es muy sugerente en ideas. La disposición de las cucharas que parecen estandartes clavados en la tierra, en linea recta, una primera y una última, la línea recta roja para que las cucharas queden ordenadas. Un orden! Las cucharas son la humanidad y sus necesidades. Luego el cedazo que deja pasar la tierra fina. Y al final cuando cargas con la cuchara, ponérsela al hombro y mirar al frente y desaparecer de la pantalla hacia otro lugar. Es una ceremonia, el ritual de la relación con la tierra y con nuestras necesidades.
