Research led at Convent de les Artes, Alcover, Catalunya.
In collaboration with Artéco Association, Italy.
20 September – 20 October 2017
When I was called to confront the cultural heritage of Alcover, the research focused on the observation of the
landscape, which I explored following ancient irrigation canals that led me to fields characterized by intensive
hazelnut and olive trees monocultures. This allowed me to spot connections with my wider research on soli and
agriculture, and to produce some considerations about concepts like value, time, health, and the relationship
between production and the environment.
Special thanks to Marc Caparò for sharing his research and his knowledge of the territory.
