Dialogue with A Coruña art in context workshop
April-May 2010

In the neighbouring city of Ferrol, the historic Ferrol Velho district lies deserted, victim of housing speculation, waiting for the bulldozers to turn it into a valuable lot. Tarasancos interferes using objects that the context turns into ghosts. Though very restrained, his interventions come across as clearly deliberate, even strident, in a context otherwise divested of any trace of life.
