Images: Atlas that holds up the sky – Atlas as anthropomorphic column – Atlantes that hold up buildings. From this point, it has been made an Atlas de-athropomorphiced that fulfils the same function: to hold up. However, this time the weight is he himself as he is holding up his own deformed copy, which in turn holds up the original. Atlas that holds up Atlas (the Atlas hieratical and the Atlas baroque). The myth is not used as metaphor, but as primitive story from which to develop new narratives through the plastic and the visual.
