Al voltant de la carbonera. Laura Palau
Confluències. Els Ports
Vallibona sometimes builds a coal bunker to remember one of the professions to which the town owes a large part of its identity, given that it was what locals lived off for many years. In this context, Laura Palau, an artist participating in the Confluencies programme includes this in her process of historic recreation and starts with guarding the coal bunker for one week, from 8th until 16th October 2022. During that time, she invites locals and visitors to meet around this fiery mountain to talk about natural and cultural extraction, tell stories, sing songs, read tarot and guard the fire until it emits blue smoke and the fire point is no longer white.
We propose this trip from Valencia to discover the process and research that the artist is carrying out in Vallibona, within the context of Confluències.
