Pool & WTRMLN Curtains

2017

Promotora, a project curated by Carlos Fernandez-Pello, Centre Civic Can Felipa, Barcelona (SP)

Belén is inspired by the pool of this Civic Center to make a family of hand painted curtains.

This series of curtains start, on one hand,  from the dimensions and stimuli of the pool of Can Felipa, in Barcelona and, on the other, from the textile as raw sculpture material that can be eroded through abrasives, as one who carves a stone in sight of a microscope. The production method also reflects on seriality when creating a pattern, playing with repetition and the difference of the same gesture that, being manual, will always be unique and unrepeatable.
