PUERTA AL SOL The proposal consists of building a solar observatory with the intention of returning to an ancestral rite made by different cultures of the world that maintained a close relationship with the sun and their natural environment. The sculptural installation will be made with natural materials found and collected along the way to the chosen point, which should be on top of a hill of Natural Park Peñagolosa and the orientation will be from east to west, corresponding with the cyclical movement of the sun. This location is strategic, because it has to be positioned in such a way that it aligns to the sun at sunrise and sunset, otherwise it would lose the status of a solar observatory. The act of traveling, walking and pilgrimage are practices…

I would like to contribute in colaborative process, with final product - specific narrative and photo material. The process will be compiled of interviews –not excatly documentaristic, yet -open, deep, i.e. taken in ethnographical method (anonymously or voluntarily with name). Narrative part would be diary with photos and notes, stories from interviews, framed by theory based on cultural analysis, dedicated to context; nature -people -sacred -landscape -art- myth- purpose. Encouriging but not interrupting interviews would along with photo & theory make concrete interesting essay, usuful for popular-scientific presentation on different media and periodical reviews. Open interviews/ talks taken on terrain have possibility to inspire artists more. For instance - supposing that artists in Penyagolosa Natural Park could consider themselves as being on journey that will make difference in their life,…

Pilgrimage. From the Series Inner Territories The possibility of working at Penyagolosa Natural Park, set me in the mood to connect with nature on a ceremonial way and at the same time to open a dialogue with the pagan, the religious and the public. ‘Pilgrimage’ From the Series Inner Territories, consist on building a stone labyrinth around a central structure- kind of temple to the sun or altar-, where people can walk through. The idea is to create an experience both aesthetic and playful that gives us the opportunity to think about our personal journeys, as a symbol of life itself and its obstacles, on how much can we decide on our own path, and how much comes from outside. Departing from ‘Los caminos de Penyagolosa’ that enable the pilgrims…

G(N)ASH   G(N)ASH is part land art and part installation. The installation breaks the homogeneity of the landscape to create a hybrid that is both environment and architecture, establishing a symbiotic relationship between nature and culture. Built into the face of the landscape of Penyagolosa's Natural Park, it affects how the environment is perceived. As viewers look upon it, the work becomes many things simultaneously: an engineered structure working with the environment; human being-made architecture to be used by animals as an artificial cave to hide from the sun and rain; a stitched wound in the land; and it also appears as a toothy grin, personifying the landscape as an entity which is then easier to empathize with. The structure utilizes the unique form of the local landscape in Penyagolosa's…

El Arca del Agua The project consists in building an Ark to save the Water, like Noah built one to save God’s creation from the Deluge It takes into account the sacredness given to Water by the Pelegrins de Les Useres in their prayer to the Sanctuary of Sant Joan de Penyagolosa. El Arca del Agua is a visual project involving the population of Vistabella del Maestrat. A thin, low platform, in the shape of a long canoe, The Ark, will receive the water containers offered by the inhabitants. Beautiful or modest, idle, mis-matched, useless jugs, deep plates, cups, bottles, buckets, jars, dishes, vases… These will be filled with water. 10m long overall; Platform: L: 7m, W: 80cm, H: 60cm+containers On the day before the official opening, François Davin will…

Mapping My work at Penyagolosa will be focused on our connection to the spaces and places that surround us. It will be done in two parts. For the public I would like to make a map out in the open. The idea is to represent the experience of the natual environment through collected thoughts, sound, written text, impessions ect. The whole idea is to make visitors more aware of the place that surrounds them, the things that we see everywhere but don‘t pay attention to anymore or guide them to explore it in a new way. For the artist gathered I would prepare a box Kit with few thing that shaped our experience in Penyagolosa.The idea is to leave the Kit to future residents of Enclave residency in order to…

My project is a performance with religious and pagan components, with the aim of putting together traditions and ancestral knowledge, as a syncretic action. It’s intended to be a participatory event in which we come back to ancient local practices and our own primal knowledge as humans in a contemporary manner, to re-connect with the fundamental experience of life. In order to achieve this, we will perform a pilgrimage route from the San Juan Bautista de Penyagolosa’s Sanctuary, to the Penyagolosa Peak, following a medieval tradition. Once we get there, we will build a pyramid using a solsticial rectangle based on that exact latitude, and use it to explore the effect of geometry in our bodies and within the space around us. Lastly, we will recite the “Gozos de San…
