Capsule 7, part of “Radically Emancipated” (2011), a documentary work in progress, the initial results of which became the basis for an intervention in “Cardinal Audiences” in the form of video capsules, objects and documents. Somewhere between the prohibited and the sublime, it looks at the experience of thefts of fragments of artworks that have been carried out in Barcelona by perpetrators who see their actions as exercises in profound and respectful communion with the work. In this vision of the desire to transcend the ephemeral experience of contemplation – through appropriation – Mireia touches on fetishist materialisation and possible impertinence in the face of security codes and regulations, but also comments on the poetry and politicisation required by the inner time of use of the artwork, beyond throwaway consumption and its domains of safeguarding.
