Truco a la porta de la pedra

Publication work done for the seminar “Truco a la porta de la pedra” curated by Caterina Almirall at Art Centre La Panera, in January 2017.

In this publication, I organize all the texts gathered and used by curator Caterina Almirall during the process of planning the exhibition “Truco a la porta de la pedra”, which took place at La Puntual (Barcelona) and later on at Espacio Trapezio (Madrid). In this work I connect Caterina’s texts with a group of images that I selected for the ocassion, all of them related to the stone’s matters and the artists’ works that conform Almirall’s proposal.

This publication continues the work I had done for such exhibition at La Puntual, in which (apart of exhibiting my series of paintings “Stones”) I also prepared the information leaflet in which a first selection of images accompanied Almirall’s text about the show.
