After; a dark basement, fragmented stories that become one. There is no point ofentry or place of exit (1), just a way to inhabit that dump. There is babbling and itsmells of discomfort.
After is the continuation of Mecheros de Gasolina, a project that involved theemotional and professional meeting between the artists Sahatsa Jauregi (Bilbao)and Julià Panadès (Mallorca).
They had met for the first time in 2015, in an artistic residency in País Vasco wherethey already sensed possible connections. In the spring of 2018 they were invited tohave a public conversation within the “Vis a Vis” initiative (Bilbao). Found objects,accumulate, emotional context, irrational, intuitive, humor, desire, whim,post-industrial, assembly, decline, imitation, noble materials, game, ritual, longing,ecology, Brazil, excessive, things, adore, Mallorca Island, trophies , spirituality,crystals, ecology, fleamarket, alternative therapies, at ground level, decoration,impermanence, chance, failed, rarities, precariousness, reuse or collect; were somewords with which that encounter was described in a publication that was published later.
In the fall of 2019, the Tabakalera collaborative residency allowed them to share timeand study for two months, break with their usual processes and investigate thoseconnections with the Mecheros de Gasolina project. In 2021 the result of this projectcould be seen in the exhibition 'Estudiotik at' also in Tabakalera Donosti.With After they continue this project, adapting to the conditions of the Fran Reusgallery space.
