Weird Animals

When it comes to creativity and recycling it is always fascinating and interesting, besides being useful. Maybe this is the reason why I share the phrase “Once, old and broken things were not being throw away, but were repaired. Before being thrown and replaced by something new, those pieces that are considered recyclable have been owned by people who have given use and life. Unfortunately the replacing with something new is a common behaviour among all of us, but some people are doing everything possible to try to recover the damage that has been done and it is still done at our planet. L’Animalada is an example of this, an example of creativity and an example of healthy thinking. This is a series of animals by Sandra Sarda Cabero, which combines three different worlds. Waste reduction, recycling of materials and retrieving objects. The passion for the game and what happens when this is introduced into the public space. The need to create and look for aesthetic correspondences between the recovered and / or found object and animals. The result has several interpretations but the most satisfying with a point of poetry is that trough the work of Sandra is given to those objects a new life. It is the returning to the life cycle, metaphorically, the first level and most genuine; the natural world, from where everything, toxic or not, is returned. Taking in consideration the depths sense of L’Animalada, Weird Animals has the ambition to talk about the importance of recycling by addressing the issue in a rather unusual way. Put this animals in their natural place, suggests what it could be the future of our planet. The idea of being surrounded by recycled animals of course scares everyone, even if the images do not transmit and do not pretend to have nothing awful, but the opposite. Rather surreal, dreamlike.
