Ici Même

Benifallet, 2000
Curated by Betty Bui and Gilles Courdet.

In the context of the project Segona Estació

The Benifallet train station in Tarragona; far from the village, on the other side of the river, difficult to get to, is now a strange place, a ruin of progress, an undefined territory. The trees grow on the rails, nobody waits for the train. Building a bus shelter here, another «station», a small building, the minimum expression of a house, a place where one can seek shelter from the sun or the rain, a place where one may sit and wait. The space usually reserved for advertising remains empty, there is only a strip of lighting; at night it lights up the forest.
