An Open-Air Collection and A Map

A site-specific project for PINEA-LINEA DE COSTA

As an artist (also known as unprofessional tourist), although

I would love to visit those famous attractions, I’m also

curious where do local people like to go here. I asked

people who live here to help me to explore this beautiful

town by telling me their favorite place here and reason.

Then I had many small one-day trips by my own, tried to

experience this place not only by eyes but also by other

senses. After the research, I made different works for each

place.

In my previous works, usually I use plaster to cast and

collect traces by humans in cities, but this time I use

transparent silicone (yes it’s the thing you fix your bathroom

tub) to cast the texture of different places. These moulds I

made solidified the air surrounded by and captured traces,

dust, rocks or everything on it, showing the evidence that

something/ someone was here.

And I found the progress, this period of time that I have to

wait until it’s dry, is quite interesting. These pieces of

silicone aren't just casting, or being a mould by themselves,

also they’ve become an indistinct mark to tag that certain

place or object. Then I decided to leave my works at those

places for a temporary open-air exhibition, from the day I

cast till the day before I leave. You can only see them by

accident or by the map I draw. I made a private tour map for

Rota with information of useful shops that Pablo & Ro, the

curators, gave us, some shop I went often, those ‘favorite

places’ that local people kindly recommended me, and

locations of my works.
