After several hours in the La Ermita zone of Madrid I bumped into Jem2 finishing up his piece. The relentless heat had taken a lot out of me, so the hour or so chat we had, sat down waiting for the sun shining on a corner of the piece to move was just what I needed. Looks like I should get myself down to Mostoles to see what it’s got.
Not only did Alberto work on the exterior of the signal box but he also pasted photos of photos related to the Spanish Civil War in Aranjuez in the basement and the ground floor. These include “Evacuated from Madrid” by Brandt & “Unexploded bomb” by Ignacio Martán.
Alberto’s intervention forms part of the CARAVANArt exhibition taking place in Aranjuez until July 24th at the train station organised & commissioned by Israel Sousa.
PS. If you don’t want to end up with a dozen mosquito bites like I did, don’t wear shorts & use protection. It was still worth it tho!
It was hot, I was thirsty, but I had a fantastic time with Alberto, watching him in action, helping to saw some chipboard and above all enjoying the moment.
This 3D intervention entitled Alex, is truly mesmerising. It is part of the CARAVANArt exhibition taking place in Aranjuez until July 24th at the train station.
I wonder what the passengers think as they pass it on their train journey.
