Can Gili Speaks, 2002, site-specific
back to main menu
Can Gili parla consists of a series of actions that aimed at opening conversations between neighbors about the perception of belonging at two disparate locations: the center of the town of Granollers, and Can Gili, which is an neighborhood at the outskirts of the town. Three public banners with a photograph of Can Gili neighborhood with concepts such as "amnesia" set up expectations around the central event of the work: an informal and gastronomic gathering held by the neighbors of Can Gili at a central square of Granollers where neighbors could meet other citizens and break through perceptions about space, belonging and and community.
Comissioned by Mònica Buxó and Miquel Aregay for S.P Art Públic, a series of art events in public spaces with the artists Mia Guiteras and Jordi Boldú.
