SPACIAL ABUNDANCE: Imaginaries of Post-Industrial Catalunya

Short url:

Exhibition by Juli Laczkó on the walls of Joe's Garage:

The work is a manifestation of the tension between the imaginary forms and functions of the vast space of Calafou, once an industrial colony and thread mill, now a post-capitalist, eco-industrial colony.  The abundant volume of space rendered unusable by time and nature is something that captures the wandering body and mind upon entering the area, also known as the Zona Zero.  The vast abundance of histories and possibilities feel invisible when one gets used to it, but never goes away.

Opening on November 28th with a benefit dinner. The exhibition is going on till December 12th (when Joe's Garage is open to the public)
