Statement


Multidisciplinary artist known for his work with silence. After several years of activities around music and art, in 1986 he begins to gather information on the phenomenon of silence widely understood. In 1998 he organized MUTED, a factory of silence at Barcelona Center for Contemporary Culture, a facility that was transformed into a two editions festival on the silence. Thereafter produces numerous silent actions that aim to create scenarios for silence, give it presence and investigate its possibilities. Silent Cocktails, the Blackouts or gradual switch-off of buildings and machines, Metallia Machina Silentia, Silent Concert by the Municipal Band of Barcelona, the actions Cut the Silence, Homage to Rimbaud, Drums of Silence and Building, Tubas in the Lake, Susan-Sontag-Silence-Susan, Last Words of James Lee Byars, Kakua and Kantor, clandestine actions in the ARCO fair, exhibitions, videos, edits objects fotoperformances and conferences. His work is programmed in festivals and cultural institutions in Spain and in Finland, Germany, France, UK, Italy and USA. In July 2008 performs on Antonio Barnola Gallery in Barcelona a new action that involves a change of direction in his work. The action, entitled Cursed Silence, consisted of forty-eight shooting blanks against a white wall where he intended to metaphorically kill undesirable or negative forms of silence by the non amplified sound more deafening than it could have. In April 2009, presented at Arts Santa Monica (Barcelona) a compilation catalog of their actions and reports the beginning of a new stage in his career. Tres – No More Silence, current conceptual project emerges from the need to consider the many undesirable aspects of silence and denounce it as one of the main strategies of the power domain. Tres last exhibition was in September 2012 in La Tache Gallery in Barcelona.
