(Ir. T. n. 513) The Cave
2007
The project (Ir. T. n.º513) zuloa encapsulates many of the recurring interests of Ibon Aranberri. His videos, actions in the landscape, documents and photographs are at the intersection of archival practice, documentary records and land art interventions. In 2003, Aranberri used a black metal structure to block the entrance to a cave in the Guipúzcoan mountains that is of great scientific value: the prehistoric Iritegi cave. The nomenclature of the title (Ir. T. n.º 513) refers to its scientific code in archaeological guide books. The artist left a narrow entrance for the colony of endangered bats that live in the grotto, but he vetoed people’s access to a natural space that is highly significant to the collective imaginary of the Basque Country. The action was a work of Land Art, which was not based on a local-level attempt to preserve the landscape, but rather sought to recodify it and create new communal meanings.
