Euro Minute Dollar
Plasterboard, iron, 365 cm
Exhibition view, J. Miro Foundation, 2015 / Galerie M. Iannelli, 2011
Euro Minute Dollar is a site-specific sculpture based on values borrowed from economical trading. It is based on transcribing graphs of the foreign exchange market (Forex) into a definite space.
In occasion of the exhibition Prophetia, within the spaces of the Joan Miró Foundation, four graphs, referring to the currencies exchange in 20 minutes between Euro-Dollar (EUR/USD), Euro-Swiss Franc (EUR/CHF), Euro-Yuan (EUR/CNY) and Euro-Ruble (EUR/RUB) are taken as a master for direct intervention. Plasterboard walls cut and engraved in an industrial site in Barcelona, by following the lines of the graphs up to determine their almost complete destruction, are transported into the Foundation. The fragments of those walls piled and overlapped one another generate the column.
