Una tanca, un tapís
A Fence, a Tapestry

Performance, 15', 2016
Language: Catalan
A work with Eulàlia Rovira

Una tanca, un tapís is a textual weaving composed by two alternating narrative strings. On one hand a description of an assault on a motte-and-bailey castle depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry and on the other hand a series of paraphrases from the philosophers Manuel Delanda and Emmanuel Levinas, the historian Jacques Le Goff and the architect Gottfried Semper.

First presented on the occasion of the performance and talk program AFTER, curated by Gris García, Sira Pizà and Ricardo Trigo for Sala d'Art Jove, Barcelona. The performance is a companion to the video An Orderly Landscape (2017).
