Residency at Revela-T Festival May 2016
Who is it who Comes
This work was made in response to Cal Garbat, one of the the disused fabric factories that dominate the village of Vilassar De Dalt near Barcelona. I was invited as part of an artists exchange for the Revela-T festival in 2016. Cal Garbat is only one of the many factories that dominate the landscape in the region that were built in the 19thC . The industry collapsed after WW1 and after this time, they were sporadically used and maintained decaying down from beautiful, expensive complex fabrics finally to producing screen printed t-shirts with glib and smutty slogans for people on package holidays, like a cotton based version of Basinski’s disintegration loops .
