Dancing Museums 12/2019

The democracy of beings

Dancing Museums is an action-research project designed to foster and sustain long-term collaborations between dance organisations, museums, universities and local communities in order to develop inspiring and long-lasting arts and cultural programmes that people in those communities want to get involved in.

The weeklong residency of Quim Bigas at the foundation will be inspired by Joan Miró’s triptych Painting on White Background for the Cell of a Recluse (I, II, III). Observation of the lines in the work makes it possible to perceive the connected strokes made by the artist’s hand.

Quim Bigas will work on a continuous line extending from one end of the building to the other, all the while listening to the rhythm of his own beating heart, as well as those of visitors or the people who want to join in.

This action explores constant movement and the limits of the building. It also puts into practice and brings into the light a dynamic present in Miró’s painting.

The action is also seeing as an study case for the whole organization in order to discuss forms and modes of transcreation within the institution and the different departments.
