Arcana Androginia

Arcana Androginia

Androginia Arcana is an ephemeral sculpture (Land Art) of large format (10 x 10 m) made in a field of corn planted in the Cultural Center "La Rectoría" in S. Pere de Vilamajor (Barcelona). It consists of the union of two symbols that come from prehistory and were found in the caves of Laxcaux (France), one of masculine character, with the shape of a comb, and another triangular of feminine or pubic character, both are united by an arch of cane that evokes the corpus callosum of the brain. This composition represents the androgyny and evokes the left and right hemisphere of the brain, the masculine and feminine energies in balance, in intrinsic sexual council.

This is a complex work that defends the archetypal memory and the multiple personality that develops within each being throughout different periods of life. The various cells that make up the masculine symbol, are intervened by the activity of female spirits that evoke goddesses, fairies and Mediterranean women of different historical periods, associated with different types of activity or force. Sometimes they are imaginary characters (Hakwisel and Galfriel fairies), others are taken from Mesopotamian mythology (Innanan and Ereshkigal) or from the history of sexuality (Hierodule, Hetaira), where, for this work, sexual activity is charged dimensions of alliance and energy exchange of knowledge.

Ereshkigal InannaHetaira

ERESHKIGAL (Gorgona-Kundrie): It governs all things that seem to oppose life. She is the place where the potential life lies motionless, full of fury, of greed, of fear of losing, of anger, raw instinctive splinters of consciousness.
It is the transforming destructive aspect of the cosmic will, through time and suffering it relentlessly destroys all distinctions in its indiscriminatory fires and impels, nevertheless, the new life. It symbolizes the abyss that is origin and end. (The White Goddess of Edward C. Withmon)

INANNA: In Sumerian mythology Inanna she was the goddess of love, of war and protector of the city of Uruk. With the arrival of the Acadians Inanna was transformed into Ishtar. Inanna reigns during spring and summer. For S.Perera, its symbolism represents energies that it is impossible to contain or make safe and undoubted, it represents awareness of transition and border. It embodies the autonomous and indomitable playful aspect of the feminine (Descent to the Godness by S. Perera).

Hierodule Hakwisel GaladrielHIERODULE: According to Richard Whitmond, in his book "The Return of the Goddess", formerly, in the gynolatric cultures, some women were considered hierodules, a kind of sacred prostitutes that according to Richard Whitmon, you obeyed only the ecstatic forces of their nature and offered his purifying power to the supplicants, to renew them in the mysteries of life, but they never submitted to him.

HETAIRA: Roman Courtesan The hetairas freely disposed of themselves and their fortune and were considered as persons by the men who were delighted with their treatment, their sensitivity and intelligence. As they escaped from their family and were placed on the margins of society, they also escaped from man and could thus present themselves as their peers and almost equal, in a very discriminative society.

GALAFRIEL: It is an adapatado name of the Galadriel that we find in the book the Lord of the rings, a faerie, protector of the elves. It lives in the kingdom of light

HAKWISEL: It is another imaginary faerie, a fairy, belongs to the realm of elementals and has energetizing properties and white magic.
