‘88′ at VAD in Girona, Spain

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

I made it out to the VAD Festival in Girona, Spain. Girona is a smallish city North of Barcelona. The festival took place in the city art gallery and had another venue for performances in the evening. I had a great time hanging out with artists from the US, Germany, Quebec, Belgium, and England. ‘88 Constellations’ was installed  in the gallery which seemed to get  a lot of traffic. The video screenings were great, especially the dance programme.

While I was in that part of Spain I wanted to go visit Walter Benjamin’s grave in the small border town of Port Bou. I made the trip with two artists from the festival and we took a train up to Port Bou, visited WB’s gravesite and even found the hotel where he committed suicide. My motivation for the trip was to research a new project called “The End” that incorporates the story of Benjamin’s death in 1940.

I also made it down to Barcelona where I had a fantastic day exploring the city. I love to wander through a city I don’t know and Barcelona is a great city to explore.

‘88 Constellations’ has been invited to the FILE2008 festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This will take place  August 5 – 31. The piece will be part of the Media Arts exhibition. I love this festival. I went down in 2002 with “A is for Apple” which won first prize at that festival. It was a great experience, a fabulous city, and a wonderful festival. It looks like it has really grown since then. They are doing residencies and touring shows.
