Curation, installation and visual identity for the exhibition “Plastic” of the Rural Life Museum, Fundació Carulla.
In 2018 I started working with the Rural Life Museum to co-curate the exhibition “Plastic, genius or perverse?”. A traveling exhibition that has already been at the Fishing Museum in Palamós, and the Leather Museum in Igualada. The years pass, but the theme remains current.
Scientists have been telling us about climate change for years and that we have less and less time left to reach the point of no return. One of the big problems is the excess of plastic we have on our planet. There are currently 5 islands of plastic floating in our oceans, called the garbage islands. There is a tendency to demonize plastic while others still resist to stop using it, but the problem is not the plastic itself, but us, the society, because we abuse of use of plastic -such a wonderful resource that never goes away. But what is the point of giving only one use to such a resistant material, that takes a year to disappear?
The “Plastic” exhibition was born from the need to reflect and debate about one of the materials that has changed our lives the most: the plastic. Our aim was to create an exhibition that generates reflection and critical thinking from an artistic and experimental perspective, bringing together artworks by twenty artists, and where users can participate, empowering themselves to be the engine of change.
