POLYPHEMUS’ EYE – 3,2,1 Festival in Alhóndiga Bilbao, Spain by Plastique Fantastique

El OJO DE POLIFEMO (Polyphemus’ Eye) transforms the Alhóndiga’s main Hall into the Cylops’s cave, and visitors into lost travellers. The Eye looks directly at the entrance, and its presence leaves no passer-by indifferent. The only way to stay alive is to offer wine to the Giant, amplifying astuteness and mixing stories so as not to be devoured by his deeds. It is an installation, one architecture within another, a memorable scene which invites you to look, to penetrate the Eye and to discover its interior and its surroundings. A perceptive journey which swings from the Homeric epic to surrealist experience and the verses of Cortázar within the context of the 3, 2, 1 Gathering and Alhóndiga Bilbao.

“You look at me, you look at me closely, each time closer and then we play Cyclops, we look at each other closer each time and our eyes grow, they grow closer, they overlap and the Cyclops look at each other (…)”. Julio Cortázar: Hopscotch, chapter 7.
