Inside 

the Zone

Inside the Zone, is a site-specific project for the Roca Umbert Thermal in Granollers, which deals with the residual architectural spaces, in which the artist influenced by the work and the universe of the prestigious Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, takes advantage of the atmosphere of one of his mythical films, "Stalker" (based on the novel by the Strugatski brothers; Picnic by the road) and trace a space intervention course, in which he goes into his particular ZONE, to become a guide through spaces Decadent, which make up a non-everyday scenario in which architecture achieves through the decline a sublime uniformity between nature and artificiality. The artist as a flanneur, by launching a thread tied to a ribbon (as the protagonist of the film does), creates his own path and intervenes the space with his presence, to discover those corners through which his journey will converge.

 

The artist, once again enters the industrial world, acts as a catalyst for the invasion of nature over urban spaces, through walks between artificial structures, orphan spaces of cities that acquire a category of residual space, ghostly spaces in disuse that they collect in themselves, places of immense beauty. The artist therefore modifies his visual-sound reality while performing the action of the record, as an act of spatial performativitat through the architectural dimension and ends up to constitute a new residual space, a new visual and sound architecture that has nothing to do with the one designed for the original use of the space.
