La ronda is the title given by Morocco-born French artist Latifa Echakhch to the project she conceived for La Capella MACBA, an exhibition consisting of three installations: Eivissa (2010), Gaya (E102) 5, Vitrail (2010) and Fantasia (2010). Like most of Echakhch's oeuvre, these works have their origins in a material, a texture, or an object with some link to the artist's own life and experiences, which lead her to a broader reflection on her past and also on the meaning of the materials, traditions and symbols and their social functions. In this text, MACBA curator Soledad Gutiérrez offers readings on several different levels of a project that is committed to its own time and to history, which starts from a very personal perspective in order to trigger a reflection around issues of a political nature that affect us all.

All the exhibitions at the Capella MACBA share the common denominator of having been specifically produced to be shown in this space. Our purpose is not to promote a link with the architecture but to foster an awareness of the creation, through a particular ‘topos', of a new work that the museum may acquire for its collection in the future.

Why and How do I Do what I Do?: a conversation between Latifa Echakhch and Soledad Gutiérrez
Son[i]a #109 Latifa Echakhch

I like to work with what is often called "cultural heritage", but the materials that I use are banal and clichéd, like sugar blocks, doors, couscous, rugs, official documents.
