Carmen Calvo

The heavens are sewn

IVAM ProduceIVAM Centre Julio González

A new intervention on the IVAM façade, in this case by the artist Carmen Calvo (Valencia, 1950). The work, bearing the title The heavens are sewn, is a portrait of an anonymous, timeless woman through whom the artist wishes to focus on gender equality and equality in the workplace. A topical theme that concerns the artist as a woman and as a member of society.

The image, which seeks to represent all women who have been annulled or manipulated or who have been victims of injustice, is a photograph transformed into a collage measuring 9 x 9 metres, which is exhibited on the façade of the museum from September to December 2019.
