For Pavement # 5 Permanent presents The Great Apes by Isabel Albiol Estrada. The title of her show is the common term for Hominidae, a taxonomic family of primates which includes humans, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans and their extinct relatives. For the last 2 years Isabel has been researching and gathering stories and photographs of individuals of the Hominidae family who have become in someway famous or notable, both real and fictional, in order to produce a series of graphite on paper drawings. With this work she intends to underline our palingenetic predisposition to associate with other living creatures no mater the circumstances, recalling notions of a primitive yearning stamped onto the human psyche early on our evolution, as well as playing with anthropomorphised concepts of fame and celebrity. The resulting drawings, which could be described as a cross-over of natural-history-style-illustration and celebrity photorealistic portraiture, will be presented as a wall-of-fame installation in the Permanent Gallery window
