The concept of time generates its own images: orange peel, cake, a snail's shell, palo santo, the factory floor… which suggest to us labyrinthine complexities, the cumulative density of layers and the superposition of the palimpsest. Francesc Abad's work is mostly structured around a reflection upon time from the absolute present (territory, ideologies, conflict), in order to project towards the past conceived as a construction of history and memory (W. Benjamin), and towards a future which must be considered and formulated under the shadow of utopia (E. Bloch).

This discourse confronts a dual contingency, that which is imposed by the pace of time and that which is generated by the dominant powers (capital, ideologies). Thus, a strategy of precariousness, along the lines of a samizdat, must be developed, from which resistance and confrontation may become possible. Strategy of Precariousness is also present as an epilogue which gathers together Francesc Abad's recent works, and as an archive integrated by the diversity of the fragments which shape personal and collective experience.

Project curated by Miquel Bardagil and Magdala Perpinyà.
