THE STEP: TRANS-MEMORIES AND EMERGENCY EXITS
This project aims to track a path from the geological to the anthropological, from the different settlements and conflict places of the Republican faction during the World War II and the Civil War. The methodology of the project is divided into three different phases:
The first, concerning the archive and specific documentation of territory and different events in the Irún-Hendaya pass
The second, in which an experimental tracing work is carried out in the contaminated territory, with the aim of extracting fragments of shrapnel from the same period.
And a third phase, in which she intends to transform that shrapnel into a jewel. Following this same methodology, searches have been carried out in different places, with the idea to assemble a collection of jewels over time, related to divergent places of the republican occupation.
We share the video presenting the activities developed within the frame of the EAS-EZE Program to Internalize Contemporary Basque Art, during the stay in Buenos Aires (Argentina).
