Title:
The goalkeeper and the void – El portero y el vacío, 2010, 3’ 56’’
synopsis:
“I confess that I have applied to art aspects learned on football.” Eduardo Chillida. Eduardo Chillida was goalkeeper of the Real Sociedad team from 1942 to 1943, when he was very young. He retired because of a knee injury. Later he became one of the greatest sculptors of XXth century.
This machinima (created with the video game Pro Evolution Soccer 09) explores the thoughts of Chillida, about space, time and sculpture, from within the three-dimensional void of a football goal.
