Translació d'arena de la platja a un camp de conreu
Translation of Sand from a Beach to a Field
1973 (1992)
Translacions (Translations) comprises a collection of photographs of actions carried out in various natural spaces in 1973. The first action, held in Ciutadella Park, involved painting snail shells with pigments in different colours. The second was on the beach at Premià de Mar and entailed floating a four-square-metre area of grass on the sea using a small rowing boat. The third, at Sant Martí d’Empúries, consisted of moving sand from dunes on the beach to a crop field. These works showed the way an unchanged natural element operates outside its context. In another of these actions, entitled Dona-arbre (Woman-Tree), Miralles planted herself in the ground as if she were a tree. The artist buried herself almost up to her waist in the ground in a field in Sant Llorenç del Munt. With these acts, the artist ponders on the issue of what belonging to something means, how the existing state of affairs is disrupted and where the limit of the status quo lies.
