Workshop

Activity carried out by the artist Enric Farrés Duran with the collaboration of the historian Arnau González Vilalta, within the framework of the exhibition El 85% de la materia, curated by Caterina Almirall.

A briefcase or storyboard? A decorative object or historical evidence? A trace of something that happened many years ago or a hint of what has to come? This activity proposes to investigate possible ways of reading an object and documenting its history, stories. Enric Farrés Duran has been developing some of his artistic work around the archive that he himself has created, The Roles of the Century, a collection of thousands of papers and documents, that refer to stories, objects, people On this occasion we will try to make the way the other way around: we have an object, the mysterious alchemical peach, and we will look for its history, and therefore, the documents that allow explaining it tell. With this activity we will try the construction -and deconstruction- of a file and its functions, and the possibilities to imagine and shape a story. That is why we will have the help of a skilled expert to work with archives of all kinds, the historian Arnau González Vilalta.

 

The activity is presented as a piece that is incorporated into the exhibition 85% of the subject, which will take us to introduce ourselves a little more in the proposal: what is the role of the imagination in the story of the story, how can we document everything we do not see? To do this we propose an intense collective imagination exercise in which we need experts, but also enthusiasts, amateurs and gamers.
