Wi´Te´Nah´

Casa Origen

 

My artwork’s esthetics must be attractive. Its goals is to change the people´s perception. My post-conceptual practice is based on recuperation and transformation.        I sculpt and organize objects from my daily environment to highlight a downtime.

– Samuel D´lppolito

In French, his native language, the literal translation of the Mayan words «Wi´Te´Na´» is not «Origin Home», but «The Root-Tree House». Therefore, the Belgian artist invites us to enter his artwork and enjoy the experience as if his sculpture was our ancestral home. For that motive the physical representation – or rather external one – of this work is the X, used as an architectural element by the ancient Mayan.
