I have woken up in a room
Something has happened with the water
The guards are the voices that link me to the objects
With them, the whispers won’t stop
The faucets breathe between my hands and my skin turns blue.
The color puddles on the floor reflect something that I had seen before, but I hadn’t realized...
My eyes fill with water.
I am here to wait, but I don’t know for what.
Me he despertado en una sala
Ha pasado algo con el agua
Los vigilantes son las voces que me unen a los objetos
Con ellos los murmullos ya no se callan.
Los grifos respiran entre mis manos y mi piel se vuelve azul.
Los charcos de color sobre el suelo reflejan algo que ya
había visto antes, pero no me había dado
Mis ojos se llenan de agua.
Estoy aquí para esperar, pero no sé el qué.

The exhibition had different listening points where the spectator could listen to sound pieces, some more instrumental, others more narrative, that weaved different fragments of a strange and mysterious story...
These sound pieces where created entirely by Nathanaël Ruiz de Infante for the exhibition.
