‘N°2’ Personal representation and self-production stool made with materials inhabited from houses in La Latina and Lavapiés (Madrid). No2 is an introspective reflection about a street network made by improvisation over time in the old Madrid center where “the Rastro” is.
A wide range of people, people talking confident with strangers in small stores. Gipsy churches, worship, the sound of bell towers. The lack of class hierarchies. A neighborhood where the stability of long generations coexists with young people from abroad. Noisy streets.
And now, we abandoned the streets, the old wood workshop and bars are closed, abandoned rubble bags, granite pieces of raised roads, furniture on the streets. Inhabited “urban materials” and abandonment are part of this network.
