Project - Performance - Video


Know was commissioned by the curator of the Espace Cultural Ample for the “Vanity” group exhibition, in which the participating artists had to work on the concept of vanity.

Recalling a dream from my childhood, I asked Gerard Quintana, the former lyric writer and singer with the group Sopa de Cabra, a referent from the collective imaginary of contemporary catalan popular music, to sing a song to me. I tracked him down, arranged to meet him to explain my proposal to him and he agreed. The result of the action is a document on video of Gerard Quintana singing a version of Nick Drake’s song “Know” to me, accompanied by the guitarist Francesc Bertran, in the Galery Espace Cultural Ample in Barcelona, where the action was recorded behind closed doors.
