R=FMI. Sacar una piedra del muro de La Capella
Attempting over a period of eight months to temporarily remove a stone from the wall of an exhibition space.
La Capella de Sant Corneli in the town of Cardedeu is a small former pre-Romanesque chapel that is now used as an exhibition space. The idea of this solo show is to attempt to change the position of one of the component parts of the space –a stone– for the duration of the exhibition. The project raises questions about the limits of the possible that mobilise some of the institutions and inhabitants of the town.

The process is described in an online diary in which the public can follow the story as it happens, culminating with the Heritage Committee refusing to extract the stone 'so as to avoid distorting history.'

Antonio Cruz, an illustrator who draws postcards of historic buildings in Catalonia, is asked to produce a new postcard that recreates this story as a historical event. The postcard can be purchased at several points of sale in the town, and is only produced and distributed whenever it is presented in an exhibition. .
