Bategant

Bategant (beating),

tindrem la mida de totes les coses (we will have the measure of all things)

només en dir-nos que ens seguim amant (if we only tell ourselves that we still love each other).

 

The sky of the courtyard of Sant Jaume and Sant Maties is beating. The space is filled with an intense red that wanders around the courtyard, coming closer and then moving away from the viewer to the sound of majestic catenaries. Desire awakes in the heights and the dreams. It rushes through the arches of the courtyard out of control because of a passion without limits. It gets lost travelling through the curves and eventually surrenders, defeated at the feet of the most earthly pleasures.
