To both be and make a border is the primary motivation of this artistic project by Marco Noris. The artist spent almost a month walking the line of the border in the Pyrenees from Andorra to Portbou. An invisible geographic line that is the product of a superimposed layer of historical events, which is made visible through the hundreds of milestones (mugues) that delimit the separation between the countries.
Marco Noris’ itinerary has a pronounced experiential character manifested by the exercise of painting in the open air. In this sense, what apparently seems a playful and contemplative attitude of the artist in relation to the landscape, becomes an action that assumes the form of a critical inventory of the fact of the border and everything related to it: refugees, exile, exclusion, marginalization. In other words, the distance, fatigue and weather conditions experienced by the artist himself acquire an allegorical configuration that refers to all those unfortunate souls of yesterday, today and the future.
These drawings made in situ during the trip, which may be understood as something between a personal diary and a notarial record reaffirming the line of the border, evoke the artist’s visual and emotional connection with a context both inhospitable and fascinating, thereby developing an entirely new setting for memory.

“Entitled No era el sol [It wasn’t the sun], the exhibition showing a lot of Noris’ work developed around the disappearance in the mass graves, the cruelty of borders, the civil war, exile and uprooting, as well as environmental matters using metaphors for both our material and moral ruins, and readings at a more introspective level as a first and unavoidable step towards accepting denial and shadow to deal with the escalation in technology, excessive consumption and entertainment that blinds us all.”
