Pizarro-Cirilo Amorós: The Monuments of Fallas 2009

Add to Flipboard Magazine.
7th Place

2008 Ranking: 8th Place
Pizarro-Cirilo-Amoros
“Viatge pel temps”

One of the most central Fallas monuments this year was among the very best — at least according to us. We would’ve put Pizarro-Cirilo Amorós’s hilarious and beautiful “journey through time” in the top 4, and are disappointed about its 7th place finish (location).

With a strong theme unifying its different aspects, this was the Fallas monument that made the most “sense” as you walked around it. Famous characters from history find themselves in different epochs. So you have Diego Velázquez choking the life out of Picasso for modernizing one of his paintings, and Amy Winehouse offering a light to cavemen.

And the large elements of the monument, which represent the time machine, were striking as well. The old professor hangs on for dear life as a futuristic robotic woman points the way towards the future. Great stuff.
