‘Llocs intangibles

www.rco.space/

This project seeks to embody an essential aspect of Riba-roja d’Ebre which lies only in the thoughts of its inhabitants. This layer is immaterial, constituted by thoughts related to those places that evoke memories.

These subtle treasures, which are omitted from official maps, are what feeds into this sculpture, developed with the direct participation of the people, which are brought into the physical world. This is done through symbols associated with personal and special places, which are preserved in glass jars.

The work invites the public to observe what is behind these objects and they are encouraged to find these corners with the help of maps associated with each treasure, which are kept in the public library of the village.

I am an architect, an urban researcher, water-colourist of scenery at a miniature scale. I am an ‘urban sketcher’, cartographer and now I am on a journey to connect these facets through art. I love to sing, collect antique objects, walking and talking with people. I am from Santiago, Chile. Currently I live in Southampton, U K.

GUIDED TOUR BOOKING FORM

The best way to experience the Riu d’art Open Air Gallery is with a guided tour! The Riba Rocks association members offer guided tours in either English, Catalan or Spanish. A perfect activity for all the family. (Tours are free, although a donation to the association would be greatly appreciated.)

We offer guided tours throughout the summer months. The tour is completed in two parts, a morning stroll and an evening walk. With a long lunch and siesta break in between. If you would like to book a guided tour fill in the form below.

If you are visiting Riba-roja d’Ebre and would like to stay, we can recommended accommodation. Riba Rocks can arrange lunch for you at a local bar or restaurant as part of the day tour. The tour offers you an insight into the background of each artist and the concept behind their work in Riba-roja d’Ebre.

It is a great way of seeing the beautiful, village streets and other sites along the way. You will be given your own map which indicates where each artwork can be found. You can then revisit or recommend to a friend!
