The accompanied Counselor of Education, Culture and Universities, Rafael Bosch, of the General Director of Culture and Youth, Isabel Cerdà, has presented the multidisciplinary work 'Faces Project' of the artist Bernardí Roig, who will expose himself to His|Her Llonja from the month of July. 'Faces Project' is a proposal that one big|great attractive combines for the citizens as well as for the visitors and a new step, unedited, in the work of Bernardí Roig.
As Bosch has explained, for the realization of the central axis|axle of this project the col•laboració of 1.700 volunteers will be necessary and, for this, the author asks for the civic participation|shareholding. Thus, on the 21, 22, 23 and 24 of this month of April, between 11 o'clock and 20 hours, a session of casting individualized among|between all volunteers will be carried out in His|Her Llonja that they want to take part in the project, that will have to be adult and wear|carry an identificatiu document.
The idea is to photograph each one of the 1.700 faces making one of the three gestures that will be proposed graphically, which are in the sculptural work of the baroque artist Franz Xaver Messerschmidt inspired. This material will be the central axis|axle of 'Faces Project', who|which will expose itself|himself|herself to His|Her Llonja at the beginning of the month of July and will be able to be visited until the month of November.
