"That Way" is a bronze sculpture by Beatriz Gerenstein where the artist explores the relationship of the human being with the social order. For that, the artist uses a metaphor, the disagreement of the horse and the rider. The sculpture shows a horse and its rider but the latter is sitting “backward”. The rider has his arm outstretched, pointing to a path in the direction of the back of the animal. The horse, reluctant, turns its head and finally obeys the will of the rider. The horse has a shiny black patina. The rider has a brilliant golden patina. This color contrast between horse and rider gives even more relevance to the composition of the work and its concept.
The world we live in imposes limits, tastes, ideas, prejudices, and fashions, presses us and wants to direct us at will. Can we choose our own path? Do we have the strength and enthusiasm? Of course, we do!
