Opening

Lúa Coderch (1982) won the third edition of the ProdArt contest and grant that the Fundació Suñol awards to a fine-art postgraduate, in collaboration with the University of Barcelona. Although Coderch was born in Peru, she only lived there a short time and has no memories of it. However, she has come up with lots of weird and wonderful ideas about this connected yet unknown place for her. Gold is a video that recreates a fictitious Peru based on sites, objects or images found in her current immediate surroundings that might represent this imaginary landscape. Lúa Coderch works with pretend stories and explores the processes for creating desire, value, charisma and other fictions, based on the legend of El Dorado, as well as throwing some barbs at the current speculative economy.
