|CONCEPT||Installation on the identity of a geographical space -the Plaza de Colón in Madrid-, through public bureaucratic elements chosen from those surrounding it with which a combinatory work is carried out.|
|DESCRIPTION||The installation consists of five types of elements: four corresponding to the four limits of the square and one that is, to scale, the line representing the limits of the space of the square.
The side corresponding to the northern zone of the square is made up of works on printed matter from the three banks located there. 18 works to be presented in a transparent methacrylate frame.
On the east side there will be a work on a ticket from the Cafetería Manila.
On the west side there will be a work about a reader’s card from the Biblioteca Nacional.
In the south there is a transcription of the original print made on the bottom of a smoked glass that rested on the floor, so that you can see the reflection of the person approaching the work itself.
|EXHIBITIONS||This work is part of the exhibition FUERA DE FORMATO in 1983 at the Centro Cultural de la Villa de Madrid. Concha Jerez was also the “Curator”, together with Teresa Camps and Nacho Criado, of this exhibition, which was a staging of the Conceptual Art that was taking place at that time in the Spanish artistic scene.|
