Screen Festival and Loop Fair: Perejaume
From the 16th May, 2013
In the artpiece Màquina d'alè (Breath machine), Perejaume raises questions about authorship, which is questioned with the help of sensory and poetic elements which the artist uses to establish dialogue with the landscape expressing the sense of representation.
"On the one hand, I think of the four zephyrs on Girona's tapestry of the Creation sitting astride wind bags and blowing through two horns, one in each hand. And I also think of the diver from the christmas carol by J.V Foix – with pure air in his diving cylinder – who dives into the ocean to take a gift from the deepest depths of the sea" (Perejaume).
