François Davin Project

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 prepare food and invite all the involved inhabitants to share it on-site.
