Juanli Carrión turns his attention to the concept of ubiquity and seeks to give material expression to the invisible space or the virtual space through two locations: Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain and New York in the United States. He begins by searching on Google for images that portray the word "ruin" in these two places: Hondamen in Basque, Ruin in English and Ruina in Spanish.

Praxis is linked to the culture of DIY (do-it-yourself) and stems from the current economic crisis. At the same time, it is a laboratory or experimental workshop that is dynamic and complementary in character and which in itself generates an alternative module to the annual programme. Carrión will be in the ARTIUM exhibition space throughout the entire duration of the project.
