The International Contemporary Art Fair ARTESANTANDER took place on July 16-20 at the Santander Municipal Palace. SET ESPAI D’ART presented the project “Systems” by the artist Eltono (Paris, 1975), actions carried out in the cities of Valencia and Madrid.
Eltono invents systems where the loss of control of the final result is programmed. Systems in which the work, the environment and the artist interact to create an uncertain result, the result of all the variables and external factors that intersect during the process. Flâneur, stubborn walker and chronic observer, for years Eltono has used public space as support, studio and inspiration source. His sensitivity to what is happening around him and his knowledge of the nature of the street – its whims and its unpredictability – are his main tools when generating works.
