“Soc l’Iñaki Alvarez. El meu treball procedeix de la performance i es desenvolupa en els àmbits del vídeo, la fotografia i, ja fa uns anys també en les arts en viu. En Miquel Bardagil diu que dos temes constants en la meva obra són el cos i la paraula. Del primer deriva l’acció, mentre que el segon em porta a la poesia, la veu, el text i la reflexió sobre la capacitat i limitacions expressives de les paraules. Des del 2012 també coordino la plataforma i espai nyamnyam conjuntament amb l’Ariadna Rodríguez.”

Air Pur is a project that revolves around the story of the film of the same title. Written by Robert Bresson and directed by René Clair in 1939, the film was unfinished because of the war; we have the script and some scenes were filmed. Air Pur takes a group of children and teenagers from run-down areas of Paris and moves them outdoors, so that they are in contact with “pure air”.

At the SÂLMON< 18, festival, the project unfolds as a videographic installation that recovers the material, also creating new narratives around it. This is carried out with a variety of approaches that include historical research, the possibility of a “tangential” activation of the script, the understanding of the conceptual material through interviews or the documentation of the artists’ own search for the recorded and archived material.
