In this sound piece, Oriol Vilanova recites, one after another and in no particular order, the more than one thousand names of the cities featured in his postcard collection of triumphal arches 'Còpies', one of his works in the MACBA Collection.

Somewhere between poetic intervention and absurdity, Vilanova's calm recital functions as a rereading of material acquired in flea markets, one of his obsessions, and emphasises some of the key concepts in his modus operandi, such as repetition, in-between spaces, semantic turns, intervals and transitions.
