Hyuro For The Crystal Ship Festival in Ostend, Belgium

hyuro01

Hyuro was one of 20 international and local artists that recently produced a series of fresh public works for the great The Crystal Ship festival, in Belgium’s coastal town of Oostende. Continuing her body of socially engaged and thought provoking works, Argentinian-born artist painted a signature image depicting women’s hands putting together a broken ceramic bowl.
Using pastel tones and her own trusty collection of brushes, Hyuro’s mural subtly blended with the facade of a solitary building, nicely composed within its format. The artist found an inspiration for her work in a fact that Belgium still holds the record for the longest time without government, as well as in its internal cultural and linguistic division. At the same time, the country’s capital is also a capital of the EU, which is slowly falling apart despite efforts to keep it united. This situation was nicely shown through a metaphor of rebuilding a broken ceramic which can never be put together into its original shape. By focusing on the action and the object while leaving the subject faceless and anonymous, Hyuro created a recognizable image that can be understood and applied universally, like most of her work painted worldwide.
