PAN-pan was the project that I presented at the CGAC, within the framework of "Situación", an exhibition held on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of this contemporary art center.
I transformed the exhibition space into a workshop for the manufacture of unconsecrated hosts.
In this fully operational factory, a specialized worker was in charge of making the hosts during the museum opening hours and throughout the entire duration of the exhibition.
All the production was made available to the attendees in the format of individual packs, each containing seven vacuum-sealed circular wafers. Broken wafers, or those with imperfections, were presented in several trays, and could be eaten in situ.
The remains of plates of unleavened bread from which the hosts were pressure stamped were thrown in one corner of the room.
By presenting the machinery and ingredients used for the industrial production of unleavened bread, and doing so from the central institution of contemporary art in a city like Compostela, destination of the greatest pilgrimage of the Catholic faith, I articulated a critical interpretation of the museum role in that specific political and social context, as well as a broader commentary on the legitimation processes that the art system, as a contemporary global structure, deploys.
