urban installations


Tronchón, Aragon, Spain






The inspiration of the project comes from the surrounding landscape of Tronchón as a characteristic and unique topography hardly seen elsewhere. The patterns of the landscape are presented in a textile which is hung in the town's place for washing the clothes.

The location of the installation has a metaphor of the cleaning as a process: cleaning of the clothes and cleaning of the terrain as a result of depopulation of the towns as Tronchón. As well as a spot where a visual relation with the art topography and the real landscape in the background can be made. Regarding this, the aim of the project is for acknowledging the beauty of the place and making local people fall in love with it again, with the hope that they are not going to migrate from this area.
