Benveniste Contemporary presents for Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend a new project with Jacobo Castellano (Jaén, 1976) entitled Retablos, a series of original graphic works printed and edited by Benveniste Contemporary and co-produced with the artist. One of the most important works in the Museo Nacional de Escultura de Valladolid is undoubtedly the Retablo Mayor de San Benito El Real. In it we can see the extraordinary display of carvings, polychromies and flesh tones developed by Alonso Berruguete, one of the most important Spanish sculptors of all times. With an iconography based on the infancy of Christ and the life of St. Benedict, this altarpiece is presented in three rooms of the museum, without losing any of its monumentality and interest. The current excellent arrangement allows us to observe the back of this great work and it is there where Castellano fixes his attention. In that area there are no polychromes and the technique of the estofado is very far away, or rather, literally on the other side. The placement of the work allows us to analyze the austere, but no less interesting and necessary, work of the artisans that has remained in obscurity until now; a work hidden between the majesty of Berruguete's carvings and the lime of the wall of the monastery of San Benito. This novel perspective allows us to make an interesting reading of the streets and the bodies of this construction, stripped, of course, of any iconographic glimpse. The sobriety of the craftsmanship shows us in a blatant way the contact of the hatchets, chisels and saws with the wood, tools that are far from the rasps or fine gouges wielded by the great masters. In Jacobo Castellano's retina are engraved the backs of the niches and friezes, rivets, wedges and various accidents where he sees a sort of "B side of everything seen before". Castellano emulates and vindicates in these works the good work and the essential of the craftsmanship, essential and silent, not silenced, thanks to the excellent current installation of the altarpiece and, of course, to these works that we have the great pleasure to present now.
