Between 1969 and 1973, Catalan artists based in Paris held a series of celebrations and collective happenings known as Ceremonials. Miralda, Joan Rabascall, Jaume Xifra, Benet Rossell and Dorothée Selz organised collective artistic actions with significant involvement of the public in various places in France and Germany. With a powerful visual force – the chromatic element was fundamental – and coloured food, music, itineraries and ritualised movements, these ‘ceremonials’ were seen as a metaphor for the need for social change that existed at that time.

Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
