Plegados Itinerantes, the paper installations by Claudio Acuña J.
How do we use public spaces? The project Plegados Itinerantes by the artist Claudio Acuña J. makes us think about it.
It is called Plegados Itinerantes (or travelling folds) and it is the masterful project of the artist Claudio Acuña J. that develops in different cities of Chile. Plegados Intinerantes consists of a series of installations of sculptures made of paper that represent in scale 1:1 groups of people.
Once he has made all the necessary sculptures, always starting from a sheet of paper and using the technique of origami, he installs them in some public spaces in different patios in Chile. The final objective of this project is to make us reflect on the impact of man in certain places of daily use and on what use is made of it.
The one created by Claudio Acuña J. is a sort of mirror of ourselves and our society, for this very reason all the sculptures are faceless, so as to encourage our identification.
Thus parks, libraries, churches and dozens of other public places are filled with the figures of Plegados Itinerarios.
