Hello and welcome to the Things that Happen virtual space. The museum’s archive also occupies a virtual space in addition to its physical space and public programme of activities. A space that is activated not only through its digital repository, but also through the metadata associated with the documents, classification systems and relationships established among all these items. You are in the virtual space of the Things that Happen project beginning from these words until the randomly chosen decontextualized quotation from the artist. This space is a mystery and a challenge.

Things that happen... at Ràdio Web MACBA. Programme
As part of the exhibition "Sampler #4. Things that Happen", I propose to get Ràdio Web MACBA to talk about her practice. I went back to the mail I received in 2015 inviting me to be interviewed by RWM, tweaked it for the occasion, and forwarded it to the relevant person at RWM. Through this simple gesture, I hope to reveal the mechanisms underlying this pseudo-radiophonic project and generate and opportunity to break the fourth wall. This conversation—not interview—is a waste of time in the best sense of the term. It is “the trace of an action”. Or of many actions.
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.
