“The first time I visited the MACBA building it was still empty. Inside it felt as if the city was on show, framed by the museum's many windows. The museum I looked from, and the square I looked at, did not seem to meet at all. Although physical neighbours, they both seemed to address their own world. It is the buildings presence in the city that I wanted to explore in the project I conceived for the museum.
We went to meet the neighbours […]. People that lived there (some families for generations in the same apartment), an old school, a café, an old convent currently under construction and a design office. At my request, the MACBA asked them if I could photograph their interiors with their view of the museum. From every view, a jig-saw puzzle was made.”

The essence of the fragment and the module resonates deeply in my work.
