‘Retorn, contendors de vida’

Local ceramic artist Adria Cid, renowned for his innovative creations, crafted these unique containers back in 2019. Inspired by the spirit of renewal and community, Cid embarked on a special project to breathe life into the remnants of a building collapse.

The result? A striking installation of ceramic plant holders, meticulously designed to adorn the once desolate site with vibrant greenery. Cid’s concept goes beyond mere aesthetics; it’s a poignant reminder of resilience and regeneration.

Today, the local neighbours have embraced this work of art, taking it upon themselves to nurture and care for the flourishing plants, thus symbolising the collective effort to transform tragedy into beauty.
