Project Description

The exhibition took place in the unique setting of a disused convent crypt now converted into a gallery space which retains the original burial niches currently used to showcase work.  Exhibiting objects in glass together with prints, drawings, collages and a projection of photos taken  at the Montjuic Cemetery, I reflected on the role of the artist as a custodian of memory. The mirrored breastplate acted as a blank canvas capturing images from its surroundings, reflecting them back as fleeting moments, while distorting them like memories. The burial niches were used to display glass pillows inspired by the cinerary urns of the Roman era and made in tribute to the empty spaces which act as a reminder of their former occupants.
