INTERVENTION: Emakume apartak. Pernan Goñi
Pernan Goñi (Oñati, 1968) exhibits his work on the main façade of Azkuna Zentroa under the Fatxada Project. Design, illustration and comic.
The artiste intervenes in this space with 3 illustrations from his project “Emakume apartak”, portraits of people, particularly women, who awaken the author ́s curiosity, from 1st October to 15th December. After a research process, Pernan Goñi draws the portraits in an experimental fashion using photographic archives.
Thus, he works from his areas of interest –feminism, literature, art, science, sport and current affairs–, portraying both historical characters like Virginia Woolf or Hedy Lamarr, and present day ones like Greta Thunberg. According to the author, «every person that is an object of interest in this personal research have innovated, provoked or challenged the established system in a very modest and subtle or radical manner. The idea is to mix criteria and provide room for more unnoticed voices and attitudes».
