"Woman against the light" - Fundació Mies van der Rohe

“Woman against the light”

A short film in black and white by Albert Badia and 15-L, based on Enric Llorach’s artistic intervention in the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion at Loop Barcelona 2017, it starts from the dance show in the composition of Fèlix Pastor and the dancer Sonia Fernández in which they rehearsed the visit of a woman in the German pavilion of Mies van der Rohe

“Built for the first time in 1929, the German Pavilion was designed to be walked across. But the pavilion is too a labyrinth. In the inside, you will find a wall of onyx. At the height of your eyes, the outbreak of veined silice will hurt you like the initial scene for Un chien andalou, which practiced the same horizontal cut to the eye. Then, your presence will become spectral until you find a sculpture on the water: a new Human form, femenine and large, captured in the moment of awakening.” Enric Llorach
