The will of listening


Tarpaulin 200 x 700 cm, 2 trumpet speakers
In collaboration with Emicel Guillén

By using the tarpaulin as a resource of social protest, this work encourages the spectator to assume a responsibility and at the same time a desire. The communicative will to which it appeals appears not only as dialogue, but as the active intention to listen. Listening in this case is an act: it implies an intentionality and an openness towards the other. The will of listening (Escuchar es voluntad) intervened the baroque façade of the ancient temple of Santa Teresa, establishing the possibility of a link between an outside and an inside.
