ESFÉRICA: Art in a 90 mm ball

By Sol Salama. July 2, 2012


“Too small, too cheap”. With this powerful slogan, a new artistic form –original as it can be– is launched. Its name is Esférica and it was born in Lisbon.

The Esférica project is in itself a tribute to the small format, to minimalism in all its many disciplines. In short, a risky bet for a format that would not fit in a stage different to the one we find it in: a vending machine that sells for two euros each 90-mm diameter ball inside which we find the works created by a wide-ranging selection of authors.

The Spanish photographer Laura Covarsí is the brains behind this curious and delicate project, which in 2006 lived its first experience in Festival Okuparte in Huesca, Spain. This past June, matured and featuring 19 authors from Spain and Portugal, it has enjoyed its first edition.

So, if you are an artist and you dare to take on the challenge of creating a spherical work of art that fits in a ball of such size, you know what to do: send your proposal here.
