The entropic box. Collision of History and Culture

20 October 2017 - 14 January 2018

| 12€

Francesc Torres, Catalan multifaceted artist, wants to transform a part of the museum into an entropic box highlighting its preservation function. By favoring works mostly from the 19th and 20th centuries selected from the museum’s collection, Torres explores the collision between history and culture while reflecting on the nature of museums.

Torres, despite not having done any of the works, has chosen them as a curator and, at the same time, will use them as objets trouvés, that is, as the first material for the realization of a multimedia installation.

The structure of the project will be extended as a landscape constructed from fragments, some literary and analogical, that will show the constant struggle of preservation against the result of all kinds of destruction: time, natural phenomena, wars, religious intolerance Anti-religious, ethnic or political, radical urban plans or economic violence.
