The installation presented and located in the Montagut Palace was born out of a desire to recreate the unique, magical and peculiar settings that can only be found in very specific parts of the Delta.
These scenes of light, colour, shadow and contrasts were created by a hanging structure, from which a series of semi-transparent fabrics in the various colours of the Delta were attached, creating an ever-changing sensation due to the effect of the sunlight and action of the wind.
It was not just a place to see, but also a place to be, so there was seating provided and visitors became an active part of the courtyard, as they were able to find their own space.
