While visiting Swinton Gallery in Madrid, I was greeted by gallery director, Goyo Villasevil. We made introductions and told him how I was interested in a few pieces by one of the artists they represented, S.A.M. His works looked like ancient pieces of art, strange and yet sophisticated in nature. Goyo had offered up the possibility of a studio visit, in return I wanted to film and document S.A.M.’s art, his story.
In this video, “S.A.M. presents at Swinton Gallery “The Schlagen Richten Collection”, objects, sculptures and posters which show in an antropological way, the history of a forgotten civilization, whose brightness and fall we can admire on it’s vestiges.” – Swinton Gallery
