Shaken, not stirred

Siksi nº4, invierno 1997

On the ground floor and in the staircase, Jon Mikel Euba showed installation drawings, slides and a video. In a space tremendously difficult to work in, his drawings managed to actually take this raw factory floor and turn it into an experience where the spectator for a moment forgot the location. In his installation, Euba questioned the usual clean and tidy gallery space and explored the possibility of telling his history in an opposed environment. In a way, his work can be considered a version of what is happening in Bilbao at the moment. Namely, the wish to challenge the image of what has been perceived as predetermined.
