Like Stains of Red Dirt reúne una serie de momentos que dan cuenta de la experiencia de un lugar concreto. En este trabajo realizado después de vivir más de diez años en Johannesburgo, Sudáfrica, la mirada de Juan Orrantia se dirige hacia el interior. A través de la combinación de escenas espontáneas, intuitivas y otras construidas, el libro va desgranando momentos, gestos y objetos de su propia casa y de los alrededores. Su uso del color y de las sombras crea un lenguaje que nace de lo subjetivo, de la experiencia diaria y de la imaginación.

En un país marcado de tantas maneras por el color, las fotografías nos invitan a pensar en la superficie tanto como forma seductora, como ilusión. Estas sugieren emociones e inquietudes, así como la presencia de corrientes históricas, políticas y representacionales subyacentes que atraviesan el contexto en el que se han tomado.

The Invisible Monument shows the process of an anachronic reading of Tehran using underground layers of an abandoned irrigation network to reveal the capital’s contemporary nature and needs. As a graphic novel, the book retraces the history of Tehran since its Zoroastrian beginnings by shedding light on how an infrastructure has the capacity to shape thoughts and space through time. Out of the necessity to inhabit the desert, an anthropogenic landscape shaped by underground water sources and astronomical cycles gave emergence to the enclosed garden as one of the oldest art forms.

In her projects, Iranian architect and artist Sara Kamalvand addresses issues such as climate change, resource depletion and pollution footprint through heritage, conservation and memory.

The recently closed La Modelo prison and the adjacent Eusebi bar serve as a backdrop to A les 8 al bar Eusebi [At 8 at bar Eusebi]. The book pays tribute to the memory of this area of Barcelona’s Eixample district and its people through an atmosphere bathed in rust and suspicion. A plot skillfully suggested by Salvi Danés through gestures, ways of looking and details to describe a time without glory.

La forma del Estado Límite Último [The Form of the Ultimate Limit State] is a publication in which the drawings of shapes created from the laws of effort overlap the images of collapsed bridges. Thus, we can visualize the moment before the catastrophe. The visual forms created from the calculations that condition the design of the structures act as gestures of rehabilitation of those bridges – more ideal than physical – and, like flowers on a tombstone, allow us to look at failure in another way.

Miriam Fernández Lara is an engineer and multidisciplinary artist. Her practice revolves around the concepts of space and time, reflecting on the process and approaching knowledge by questioning the two facets from which she works, art and science.
