FOOTPRINTS, an exhibition of Josep Lluís Mateo
“A journey, a path, is made up of a succession of points, of steps, of footprints, which, viewed as a whole, indicate a direction, reveal (or not) their meaning.
Here, without pretending to draw the line, we show a few points, some footprints, in our journey.
So others can draw it.
These moments are explained by the materials that produced them.
Although architecture is a complex phenomenon in its result (it deals with matter, space, use, economy…), in its production there is an initial moment of synthesis that generates the energy needed to develop it.
There is also a final moment that synthesises, in a second, like a flash, all the effort that has been made.
To show these initial materials, which condense the idea, and some final documents that shed light on the reality, is the purpose of this exhibition.”
