Cristian Herrera

One-Man Band in an Ivory Tower

29 and 30 June and 1 July 2022

With his One-Man Band in an Ivory Tower, Cristian Herrera invites us to visit his home to see a staging of domestic space, built by and for him, even though it was designed to be used by others. Others who have gradually entered the space, and today are his mother and father, his neighbours and us.

After a period of voluntary individual isolation followed by another of social lockdown, Cristian throws his doors open to us and offers us a tour of the various rooms containing automated devices, sculptural elements, culinary collaborations, pyrotechnics, actions and recordings. It is his way of paying tribute to those who have made his construction possible, referring to both the space and to him as a person.

There will be three one-hour tours for groups of 12 people. The tours will be held on 29 and 30 June and 1 July at 7.00 pm. To book your place, send a booking request by e-mail to lacapella@bcn.cat. Places are limited and will be allocated in order of receipt of such requests.
