An art project based on movement, thought and action practices displayed by the journey as research space.
It is moving as an attempt to merge (with the other, with oneself)
You wake up one day and you say to yourself: I’m going to travel across the longest road in Spain. You do some internet research and discover that it runs from Cádiz to Barcelona. A historic road: Via Heraclea to the Greeks, Via Augusta to the Romans. 1.248 kilometers along the Mediterranean coast. That’s the one. The N-340.
We intend to travel across it, we’re going to draw a map. A map of what? A map of the meeting. Meeting the physicality of the geography, of the territory. Meeting the body of memory and the synchronicity of time. Meeting the others, those close to us, those we still don’t know, those who arrive by chance. Meeting for us is to open gaps, to pierce voids, to destroy expectations, to question ourselves. To allow ourselves to be traversed.
And after the journey? There is no afterwards.
The synchronicity continues. The action of the time we spend together. That is, to keep on meeting, to insist on the practices of meeting by developing different proposals for performances. Traveling through performance to continue the journey. To propose performative actions from our trembling bodies as we inhabit the seeds of time next to other bodies, coexisting. To expand movement by building entrances, small fluid fragments, subtle triggers, violent provocations that allow to look around. To look at each other, who knows, maybe even seeing each other.
He who moves his legs moves his heart.
An artistic research group in search for collaborative working methodologies. We understand thought, artistic practice and production as interrelated elements on the same level within the creative process. We are David Mallols, Itxaso Corral, Oscar Bueno and Diana Delgado-Ureña; travelling companions in a project that searches for the limits of and a commitment to artistic experience.
Recovering the wisdom of uncertainty. Instinct.
Un rayo de sol oh oh oh, un rayo de sol oh oh oh
