An installation which pays tribute to Núria Font, a pioneer of dance and new media who died in 2017 at the age of 59.
The installation creates an intimate space in which to appreciate her audiovisual production and other projects that she supported as a curator and producer over several decades. The works, interviews and testimonies that form the installation have been collected in tributes made in 2018 by FIVER, IDN - Mercat de les Flors and Arts Santa Mónica. Created in collaboration with FIVER.
