‘Things that happened’ (Cosas que sucedieron) is a job whose challenge is improvisation. Starting from only two elements: a double bass player and a basketball, a story is organized where music travels from one place to another. Part of the narration takes place inside a tunnel; there the music and the sound of the action of the ball game mix. The story extends and intertwines with photographs, drawings and other elements that go beyond the limits of the genre.
This is a project that talks about music, dance and performance. It is about transferring to the viewer a traveling concept of music, its interpreters and the interrelation of the actions they develop. It is also a tribute to the people who make music, to the contagious joy they provoke in us, to the generosity that any ephemeral art supposes.
This project does not participate in the narration of any story, nor in the idea of beginning and end, here the present is interchangeable with the past and future. A time in the image that unfolds towards an infinite where nothing is specified as a new beginning makes its appearance.
Gonzalo Puch, Sevilla 1950.
I started late as a painter and had my first solo exhibition at the age of 35 at the La Maquina Española gallery, later the Pepe Cobo gallery. Soon after I left painting to work with photography and installation. My preferences gradually covered a wider space and I became interested in theater and contemporary dance. In the midst of all this, the practice of video, photography and performative actions are my main activity. Soon after I left painting to work with photography and installation.
