Campaign #TuSillaSuRefugio (YourChairHisShelter) - for the benefit of the Comisión Española de Ayuda al Refugiado (Spanish Commission of Aid to Refugees - CEAR in Spanish)
Wooden and wicker customized chair by Alejandro Sanz for the campaign #TuSillaSuRefugio (YourChairHisShelter) in benefit of the Comisión Española de Ayuda al Refugiado (CEAR). It measures 42 cm x 47 cm x 113 cm and was made in June 2017.
At dinner time we leave the best seat to our guests, in the metro a seat for the elders, and at any table where two would sit also three could seat... and now the time has come to make our chairs a symbol of refuge for those who need it most.
The Comisión Española de Ayuda al Refugiado (CEAR) joins famous names of culture, sports and journalism to show, through the chairs they customized, the cry of Spanish society which seeks to accommodate refugees.
These chairs will be displayed from June 20 to July 2, 2017 at the Ground Level of CaixaForum in Madrid.
The auction benefits will fully go to programs of reception and integration of the refugees in Spain.
Alejandro Sanz is one of the pop artists of greater international impact. Musician and composer of most of its songs, he has obtained the most important awards of the genre (Ondas, Amigo, Grammy) and several Gold and Platinum Records both nationally and abroad.
The proposal of Alejandro represents with the Chair that space offered by the Western world, a body, useful only in appearance, but vain and ineffective in reality, a chair where it is impossible to find accommodation, a place where one can never get to sit. With this artistic metaphor Alejandro Sanz tries to express the feelings of the refugee, a chair modelled by a planting of thorns, uncomfortable and painful, the portrait of the mourning painted on their faces with thousands of colours after the useless battles they have suffered. This artistic proposition invites the West to look through the eyes of the refugees, represented here in the holes of the painter´s palette, a call to reflection, a silent cry that calls for West to look through those holes and actually observe what lies beyond.
The Comisión Española de Ayuda al Refugiado, CEAR, has been more than 35 years defending Human Rights and promoting the integral development of the refugees, asylum seekers, stateless people and migrants in need of international protection and/or at risk of social exclusion.
