The Photocopy as a Work-Document

Pere Noguera (La Bisbal de l'Empordà, 1941) is a conceptual artist. Since the early 1970s he has been experimenting with the aesthetic, poetic, and metaphysical possibilities of mud, water, landscape, paper, photocopies, photography, everyday objects, action, and the passage of time. In FONS AUDIO #51, Pere Noguera talks about his formative years at Escola Massana in Barcelona and his flirtation with professional football. He also tells us about his town—La Bisbal—, about his relationship with the soil, clay, ceramics, trades, nature, and play, and about his gradual discovery of the various creative media he has worked with over the years: photocopies, printing, monotype, the mirror effect, “enfangada” (in which surfaces or objects are covered in clay), found objects, improvisation, chance, and observation. Along the way, he gives us some insight into works such as "La fotocòpia com a obra document" (1975), "Càntirs" (1976), "Pedra i ganxos de ferro. Sèrie 'Massanet'" (1977) and "Porta doble" (1990).
