"There is a color that Basques used to paint their houses with\, rouge Basque\, that originally was made out of cattle blood. When I started worki ng on images of the Conquistadores coming on land and encountering Natives\ , I decided to use ‘exotic fruit juice mix’ for the Natives. I also made ‘C arnalitos’\, two sculptures\, of Miguel de Unamuno and Sabino Arana carved of legs of jamon iberico. These two Basque characters have a significant ro le in the Basque independence struggle but stood on two opposing political sides: moderation and nationalism. Carnalitos is an expression in Spanish f or close friends as in “of the same blood”." Kasper Kovitz\, 2010

We would pleased to welcome you at our both!
