Paratext #60 with Eulàlia García Valls, Txe Roimeser Xirgo and Eduard Ruiz

This name, Paratext, hides a monthly program of performances by artists in residence at Hangar as well as artists on exchange grants. They present, in different formats, specific projects or parts of their work. The sessions are always open to the public with the purpose of enabling interaction with the artists themselves. Each Paratext also has an editor who will later publish his or her impressions of the presentation on this blog.

On this occasion, Alba Mayol will be the editor.

The next Paratext session will take place on Wednesday, January 26 at 6’30 p.m. in Hangar’s Sala Ricson.

Projects will be presented by:

Eulàlia García Valls (Long-term residency)

The specific interventions (in specific places and moments) that shape the practice of Eulalia Garcia Valls seek to tighten the relationship between the context where they are located and the behavior we adopt within it. They work as an addition or extension (add-on) to a concrete daily experience that wants to alter, question, move. They are hardly perceptible transformations that provoke a state of rethinking, negotiation and discomfort among the elements involved in the environment where they are posed.She focuses her interest on understanding and responding to certain intrinsic structures of the art system. For this reason he works directly on the context, the space where we live, its elements and its skin, understanding that acting on the space and the structures that form it allows us to alter (or affect) the behavior we have within it, and therefore, to question it.

Txe Roimeser Xirgo (Short-term residency)

from a transfeminist practice and living with/from failure, txe activates investigations that start from the somatheque. from the everyday, they points out mechanisms of identity construction and they uses the cracks and margins to generate errors that reveal powers and fictions. trying to work in a situated way, they applies the appropriation and mutation of learned codes, thus opening possible spaces for other modes of ____, with the intention that which has been hacked could be used for the struggles that challenge they and can be shared and taken up by others. working with the everyday they entails that several tentacles are the interferences that modify the processes and makes they be anxious about what they have at hand and curious about the tiny bugs that are close to they. in their moves they is accompanied by a cage in which some time ago was the food and water of kaos – #kaosmorder a rabit-, with whom they they has shared rooms, days and nights on the road, breakfasts… and from whom they were able to learn to be in other ways.

Eduard Ruiz (Summer Sessions exchange grant)

His practice investigates the relationships between territory and forms that defines it, maps, landscapes that appear on the banknotes, passports and parts found in it as forgotten objects and hidden vegetation species. Seeking to establish a bridge between space and policies that condition human behavior. A feature of Eduardo’s works is the use of materials considered trivial, which eliminates their conventional meaning and ensures that what was intended for a specific use can be considered an autonomous work.


The event will be carried out following all security measures.

Attendance is free of charge and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
