In the context of the group show “Confrontaciones (los entornos de la imagen)”, the ephemeral painting Lupus Viator, acquired monumental proprtions and covered the entirety of a wall at the museum of Anthropology in Madrid.⠀

Curators: Martín Bartolomé and Félix Guisasola⠀
Sponsor: Ministerio de Asuntos Sociales⠀
In collaboration with Ministerio de Cultura⠀

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations of an ephemeral nature and realised in situ. Later the project continued to evolve over a period of 7 years. It travelled to 7 different countries worldwide. ⠀
Taking into consideration its extensive duration, as well as its territorial movements, from country to country, Lupus Viator can be understood almost like a mythical pilgrimage, which covers the trails and places, where wolves have formerly roamed in abundance, before the species has widely become extinct.⠀
