Martí­ Anson: Martí­ and the Flour Factory / SITE Santa Fe Seventh International Biennial, Lucky Number Seven

This is the first episode covering SITE Santa Fe’s “Lucky Number Seven“, the seventh edition of the international Biennial in New Mexico, USA. This video shows the work by Martí­ Anson. Martí­ Anson is one of the 22 artists who have been commissioned to create a work for “Lucky Number Seven“, which was curated by Lance M. Fung. Spanish artist Martí­ Anson (born in 1967, lives and works in Barcelona) took a building to New Mexico. He built a copy of an original old flour mill in his home town Mataró, Spain, as expression of his astonishment caused by the controversy that was stirred up by the proposed demolition of the mill. He carried out the whole project with his own hands. After the exhibition, the building will be handed over to the city. Like several other artists Martí­ Anson has selected an off-site location to make his work for the Biennial. The building is located at the auxiliary parking lot of Museum Hill, where the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art, the Wheelwright Museum, and the Museum of International Folk Art are located. Santa Fe, July 5, 2008.
