Plaza de la Provincia. Madrid
Julio Jara performs, together with his usual collaborators from Favour is Favour Gallery, a piece on fear.
"Why fear? Because it is our second skin, with which we dress every morning, everyday.
It´s done, locked / / The rooster, it's done / / The fear in his place / / Tree Twisted / / Comfort of Home / / From life to death / / The rooster walks, it's done / / for all the walking / / Rest "
The singer, poet and artist Julio Jara is working since several years with homeless people in his artistic projects. Result of this work are, for example, the platform DentroFuera and the ongoing project Favour is Favour Gallery. In their unique and sublime actions, Julio Jara and his colleagues play with words, symbols and concepts that move the boundaries between politics and poetry.
At the Plaza de la Provincia stands the Palacio de Santa Cruz, one of the most classic examples of the architecture of the Habsburg. The building, finished in 1629 was the prison of the Court. In 1900 it was occupied by the Ministry of State, to become, from 1938 until the present, the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. At the same square you can also find a small tombstone-shaped monument commemorating the Treaty of Accession of Spain to the European Economic Community.
