“La Entrega” – Act I

Dedication, Delivery

In Catalan and Spanish, the title of the project plays with the double meaning of the word entrega (“dedication” or “delivery”), which refers to the idea of consignment and at the same time to the idea of abnegation, a common characteristic of artistic practice and walking.

The projectThe routeRoute diary

The first act of my project La Entrega (dedication, delivery)has been awarded one of the two “Art and Nature in Creation 2018” grants of the Centre d’Art la Panera de Lleida, along with the Centre d’Art i Natura de Farrera and the Centro de Arte y Naturaleza de Huesca

The project

In the Pyrenees during the development of the project On the Border, I learned that walking is about surrendering oneself in order to appropriate time and space. This time the purpose is to deliver/surrender this time and space to its addressees.

It is on this postulate that La Entrega (dedication, delivery) is born, a project conceived as a set of actions based on walking, an action understood as creative practice, stimulation of thought and refutation of an alienating, corrupted and contaminated social system. In Catalan and Spanish, the title of the project plays with the double meaning of the word entrega (“dedication” or “delivery”), which refers to the idea of consignment and at the same time to the idea of abnegation, a common characteristic of artistic practice and walking.

The residency project will thus begin with the delivery of a series of works on paper made on my way to the Centre d’Art i Natura in Farrera from my studio at Piramidón in Barcelona. These papers (in four different sizes between 50×70 and 140×200), folded as maps are usually folded, will be unusual travel notebooks, which can be considered at the same time as logbooks and inner maps. It will thus be about the delivery of the work as well as of the artist and walker, the travel time and the space traveled.

If the production of On the Border was characterized by a very strict technical planning (technique, size, support) within a traditional framework such as plein air painting, in La Entrega (dedication, delivery) there will be more space for improvisation, taking advantage of the experience gained and introducing geographical and environmental elements into the creative process.

The route has been carried out between September 25, 2018 and October 15, 2108.

Art and Nature in Creation 2018

My project The Delivery, Act I has been awarded one of the two “Art and Nature in Creation 2018” grants of the Centre d’Art la Panera de Lleida, along with the Centre d’Art i Natura de Farrera and the Centro de Arte y Naturaleza de Huesca
I would like to thank the jury – Cèlia Del Diego Thomas, Juan Guardiola, Pere Bascones – and the three organizing centers. I would also like to again congratulate the other winner, Olga Olivera-Tabeni.

What is the project about?

In the Pyrenees during the development of the project On the Border, I learned that walking is about surrendering oneself in order to appropriate time and space. This time the purpose is to deliver/surrender this time and space to its addressees.

It is on this postulate that The Delivery is born, a project conceived as a set of actions based on walking, an action understood as creative practice, stimulation of thought and refutation of an alienating, corrupted and contaminated social system. In Spanish and Catalan, the title of the project plays with the double meaning of the word entrega (“delivery”), which refers to the idea of consignment and at the same time to the idea of abnegation, a common characteristic of artistic practice and walking.

The residency project will thus begin with the delivery of a series of works on paper made on my way to the Centre d’Art i Natura in Farrera from my studio at Piramidón in Barcelona. These papers (in four different sizes between 50×70 and 140×200), folded as maps are usually folded, will be unusual travel notebooks, which can be considered at the same time as logbooks and inner maps. It will thus be about the delivery of the work as well as of the artist and walker, the travel time and the space traveled.

If the production of On the Border was characterized by a very strict technical planning (technique, size, support) within a traditional framework such as plein air painting, in The Delivery there will be more space for improvisation, taking advantage of the experience gained and introducing geographical and environmental elements into the creative process.  

The route will begin on September 25th 2018 and will have an approximate duration of 21 days.
