5, 481 km and 30 years refers to the geographical and time distance separating two distinct events. Despite fundamental differences of context and intent these unrelated events generated very similar images.
Half of the images document the work done by foundational American artists like Robert Smithson, Michael Asher and Richard Serra during the 1960s. The other half document workers’ protests in northern Spain in the 1990s.
In the absence of any written information, images cease to illustrate a given historical discourse and start revealing strange folds and creases in the time-space fabric.
