I already painted Nothing on a wall before, but sometimes even Something can be better than Nothing.

You ask some people what they think of graffiti or street art and without really giving it any thought they just start to hate on it all. So you ask them, “What would you rather see on your wall then?” The predictable answer is…
El Priorat is the wine region in the southern part of Catalunya, Spain. It’s one of the least populated parts of the region but is starting to attract a lot of tourism because of the wines produced there. This obviously brings around mixed feelings from the locals. This was (not surprisingly) discovered during a previous project, a survey asked to locals about the most important parts of the area and what they would change about it if they could. A lot of people answered “Res.” Nothing.

Nothing to see here except…
The red ropes give a presentation of nothing. Nothing more than the walls and the cellar itself. They also provide a passage for visitors to follow and mark off the preserved spaces.
Where there are no rope there are no limits, no blockades, and the life of the space and the people are able to speak .
The ephemeral inscriptions on the walls (written in chalk) are the words of the residents of the Priorat region. They are a the responses from the previous survey asking them what they thought the most important aspects of the region were and what they would want to change in the future.
Painting ‘res,’ because ‘nothing’ is exactly what we brought of ourselves into the space. We simply transcribed the messages of the people onto the walls and put on an exhibition of the space itself. We finished off by painting the repeated response to the survery, ‘res,’ at the end of the passageway.
I like it just how it is.
We don’t want to make it a perfect world.
Res. Nada. Nothing.
