ARALS

BEAUFORT LOCATION: BEACH NEAR GROENENDIJK, BREDENE

Josep Riera I Aragó

°1954, Barcelona, Spain 

The work by Josep Riera I Aragó is dominated by recurring symbols and the reduction of forms to archetypes. On the beach of Bredene there were two tall, slim Arals. With their feet planted in the sand and with their gaze turned to the sea they left a strong graphic impression. Arals are some sort of anthropomorphous objects looking out over the sea as a tribute to the drying up Aral Sea.
