Project Description

Can Ricart Shrine

Can Ricart Shrine.  Shrine made in front of Can Ricart in October, 2005. Can Ricart was a cluster of small businesses and artists’ workshops functioning inside various spaces of a factory built in 1853.  The building was under discussion of patramonial protection while expansion interests threatened demolition… during which time, the businesses and artists were forced to leave.  The Nau 21 wing was in negotiation to be returned to the artists who were using the building, but the day before the building was to be returned it mysteriously went up in flames.  This piece was an homage to the changes in local production and landscape.
