Sobre la obra

In 1806, the poet Hölderlin was admitted to a clinic because he was seen to be suffering from serious mental problems. After being declared mentally incurable, a carpenter called Zimmer and his family allowed him to stay at their house in Tubinga, on the banks of the River Neckar, where he lived locked up in a tower for over thirty years. In his last days, Hölderlin would mumble a strange, enigmatic word over and over: “pallaksch, pallaksch”.
Pallaksch is an area under construction, an undetermined place on the border of which we know nothing: a sign tells us which way to go, a cartographic map points to its possible location, a cap with his words embroidered on it shelter us from the elements and a knife serves to protect us.

la intemperie y un puñal nos sirve para protegernos

Xavier Arenós (1968)

The work of Xavier Arenós explores, investigates and claims, from the archives of historic memory, the idea of utopia. Based on the construction of architectural styles, drawings, photography, objects and audiovisual documents, he develops stories on self-exile, escapism, deserting, protection, hope or defeat. His projects focus on research processes with various formats which work like expanded documents from a critic archive.
