This was the challenge and Colectivo TAV has shown that it knows the formula. In Valencia, Spain, they have chosen a unique and emblematic space for the city. A Museum, the “Center del Carmen”, with a gothic cloister with a square floor plan with four pointed arches and galleries with vaults. It is an idyllic, solemn setting, completely isolated from the street walls where they started.
The colored adhesive tapes as the main material and all the machinery to start the project were ready. But they wanted, as they did in the beginning with the cartoonist Calpurnio in the Museum of the Enlightenment of his city, to associate on this occasion, with an artist. In this case the “joint venture” has been with dePalo, a multidisciplinary artist who plays with painting and collage in equal parts. Paloma Cort is characterized by the unique use of ingenuity in everyday situations.
Well all this: a museum + an artist + collective TAV + Miarco adhesive tapes is equal to the last intervention of this collective pioneer in Spain: “In the museum I get in”.
Dolls of four and five meters high burst into the silence of the cloister and contemplate the works of the artists under the watchful eye of all those who for the first time approach tape art. And it is that museums raise the tape art to a higher category. For dePalo, tape artists “have been like their human markers”, and they have done so. The magic of this union can be seen in the final result.
We are happy to know that they have been very well received by the public and have been followed up in the media. Keep growing and continue to investigate Colectivo TAV because we want to continue being spectators of everything you do.
And here some images of the work and the final intervention. We know that you will like it:
