Llibertat Arrencada (Ripped out Freedom)

Sweden, 2019

Material: Catalan monolingual dictionary, noticeboard display with lock and key, staples.

The page from the Catalan language dictionary containing the definition of the word Freedom (Llibertat) has been ripped out, harshly stapled and locked in a noticeboard display that has no longer a functional key.

The dysfunctional key is displaced in a specific page, pointing a word (keyword) that can be related to freedom or the lack of it. The page and the word can change, depending the context and the subject I would like to emphasize.

The following pictures of the work are from the group exhibition 'DEMOCRACY UNDER SIEGE' in Gallery Duerr (Stockholm), during August 2019. (Pictures by Gallery Duerr)
