ECONOMY OF DIVINE CHANCE
The Christmas carol emerges from a process of reinvestment of the production costs of a work of art, starting from the purchase and reinstallation of objects just as they have been presented in the illegal stalls which the poorest people set up on the fringes of legal markets as a way of surviving. Their products are often recycled items from rubbish bins.
As with the raw material of Joan Miró’s assemblages, the objects found are revived in the setting of the Fundació. They re-establish an economic flow in which the role of the artist as a producer of forms disappears only to reappear as a manager of experience. The traditional charitable gesture associated with Christmas takes the form of a tribute while at once raising questions about control of public space.
