On the 8th of December 1976, Josep Pla started the interview in the iconic programme A Fondo with a “vague critique”. Quoting by memory André Gide ”The deepest thing a human has is his surface” he criticised the name of the TV show, asking himself what to do: “Something deep that probably doesn’t exist or something intelligible and superficial?” Dichotomies apart, the proposal of Enric Farrés Duran is made of backgrounds and surfaces.

The exhibition completes the trilogy initiated by Enric Farrés Duran in which the void becomes the protagonist of the exhibition. If we exercise our memory- or we check the documentation area of the exhibition – we find that in proposals such as Paper playing a part: Make Nothing Out of Something(Los Angeles, 2017) the artist generated a series of expectations with the collection The papers of The Century. The artists invited us to visit a totally empty exhibition room emphasizing the connoted space of the California garage – the space of the entrepreneur where everything is possible – presented on that occasion as a huge bluff. This type of disappointment was repeated months later in Porto. At the space Uma Certa Falta de Coerência, Farrés organized Lay with a corpse to become invisible, an exhibition for dogs. In this case, the exhibition was not empty, in fact it was full of works but due to the materials used -smells, pheromones, microsounds-, these were only perceivable by dogs and became invisible for us humans.
