direction paris

about memories and imagery of spanish civil war, this project was made in el bruc (catalunya), where i interviewed and photographed spanish civil war survivors and refugees. one year later, i travelled to paris, trying to find traces of the stories i heard in el bruc. this series is an attempt to reflect on the fragility of imagery as witness and storyteller, on collective authorship, on memory as fictional creation.

the photographs i took while in el bruc and paris are mixed with the photographs from the survivors’ personal archives, without pointing out which is which.

this project was made possible through the full grant of can serrat art residency.
