Alluding to both monumental and child-like strategies and echoing contemporary process of dematerialisation, the ongoing Altares y Totems Playeros (Beach Altars and Totems) is a notable example therefore. The performative-sculptural-visual series is made by collecting rubbish on the beach, which is later put together into vertical constructions, documented, posted online and finally destroyed and trashed. Panadès’ humorous juggle of art, ecology, economy and spirituality designs an intricate web of connections which aptly describes the complex world we inhabit, weaving together personal imaginaries with collective dynamics while offering playful and productive ways of being in the world.
