Mr.Lazy & Mme.Leisure “leitmotiv” intervention. At “Art al Parc” in Vallparadis, Terrassa, Barcelona.
“Vallparadis park will be the center stage of the Art al Parc first edition, a multicultural event sponsored by the Ajuntamento of Terrassa to be held during the months of August, September and October. Several national and international artists were invited to, during the event, intervene in the public space of the park, and every artist or art collective will be assigned a fortnight for the purpose.
The event promotes interdisciplinary encounters of urban intervention, street art, site specific, performance art and video featuring a selection of works, which can be found all over the park, and reveal the close look at today’s society and particularly to issues of public space and citizenship.
Rather than providing the visitor with the rediscovery of the park, this event will be a point of approach of the artist to the passer-by, a break in the routine and experience of public spaces, a confrontation with the everyday life of the common place, promoting the encounter, communication and sharing of ART.”
The intervention by Mr.Lazy & Mme Leisure ended last Saturday, July 31, but some of the installations can still be found in Vallparadis.
The best way to see them was actually by going to the park and trying to find them for yourself, but in case you missed it here are some images:
If you wish to see more photos you can go to Mr. Lazy & Mme. Leisure facebook page or at the blog and while you are there, don’t forget to like the page and follow the blog it to keep up with all the interventions, performances, installations, videos and so.
I hope today’s Inspire Me Monday can inspire you not only to look and use the public space in a different way but also that it can provoke you to intervene in it.
