Àlex Nogué presents Fugir [Fleeing], a video that evokes the idea of flight, at MUME.

    Some places, perhaps all places, are containers of thoughts, of the gazes they have retained, the experiences they have staged and the images they have generated until shaping a cultural structure that crosses time. And among these places, the forest has a special significance. Its trees become the silent witnesses of everything that has happened around it, they are the archivists of people’s states of mind, the chroniclers of epic deeds, the treasurers of secrets and the makers of dreams.

    We continue to live in unsettled times. The trees of the Pyrenees saw the flight of thousands of people from the Spanish dictatorship. The same trees that have seen artists and politicians flee in the second decade of the 21st century.

   Fleeing to avoid dying. Fleeing from others, fleeing for others. Fleeing from oneself. Fleeing from fear, fleeing with fear. Fleeing to return, fleeing to forget, fleeing to lose oneself, fleeing to seek. Fleeing to desire.
