On October 15, 2016, Ex Abrupto collaborated for the second year with the MAU festival in Roca Umbert (Granollers) activating the Tèrmica with a project tailored for the space and the festival: EL MATADERO. Experience at La Tèrmica. An artistic production of Ex Abrupto produced with the audiovisual artist Llogari Antúnez and the performers Antídrom. From an audiovisual piece by the artist Llogari Antúnez we transformed the Tèrmica in a sensorial and environmental way, turning it into a “escorxador” (slaughterhouse), one of the most important industries nowadays. The antidrom performers generated different performance actions that the spectator found while visiting the installation.
MAU mostra d’art urbà is formulated from an understanding of public space as a platform for interaction. The idea is to promote an art of action that fosters dynamics of creative participation and collaboration between the users of the factory, the inhabitants of Granollers and the artists or dynamizers. The exhibition aims to reclaim public space as a platform for experimentation and reflection.
