Roser Gay 2018

‘Recollint la primavera’

I chose an abandoned house that is on Garita Street in Riba-roja d’Ebre to create this artwork. This facade has recently started to be cared for by the neighbour who lives opposite. For some time, they have placed pots full of flowers outside it and suddenly, it’s now equipped with pride and hope. In fact the house had never caught my interest before, but now someone has started to care for it, it looks as if the flowers have opened to invite swallows to nest there. This is what I want to happen to the village of Riba-roja d’Ebre, the magic of this street spreading around the old town. Hopefully the gods and goddesses are on our side and our children can feel like they are living in paradise.

My name is Roser Gay and I am thirty-two years old. For the last fifteen years have been teaching and creating, whilst living and studying in various cities. Now I would like to develop myself as a professional in my home town. Somehow, we must go back to basics. I’m working from the ‘Zona Liquida’ co-working space in Riba-roja d’Ebre. With its co-working rural project, it gives me the platform to work in a comfortable and adaptable environment in these changing times.

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!
