Esquinazos | Juan Creus


The corner is a way of breaking the reality

to claim not linear readings of the space.


Bends where the habit, as current of use,

separates and concentrates in a concrete place: it forms a corner.


They are not gestures, but the expression of new features

of the daily thing introduced as courts and indications.


As a celebration which nobody possesses and which

does without a language considered exemplary.


Construction that is positioned, divides on part,

remnant on remnant, expressing clear well ideas that

exist behind the daily thing.


It is a question of summarizing events of

the life. The meaning of this finding.


The monuments have something of it, but they lose interest

when they impose a concrete form to the reality.


The corners leave ropes, with a more elaborated speech

and an own language than wakes up the interest

of the observer on the busy space.


They are a consubstantial form to the tradition as

part of his own dynamics of change.


So there exists in them a manifest value

of new permanency.
