Premiere 'TERRApolis: Puig d’Ossa'

Festival Event


21 November 2020


L'Hospitalet del Llobregat (Spain)


30 March 2021



On November 21st, 2020, LOOP Barcelona presented the premiere of “TERRApolis: Puig d’Ossa” by Sitesize, an artist collective that includes Elvira Pujol and Joan Vila i Puig, who were commissioned to produce a video exploring the territory of L’Hospitalet de Llobregat; a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural city which practically grows out of Barcelona.

“TERRApolis: Puig d’Ossa” is the first of a series of three videos dedicated to making a personal journey through the territory of L’Hospitalet, that will be continued in 2021, with the next presentations planned for February and May. In this first video the artists document the descent of the streams from the mountains to the city, while enacting a series of shamanic rituals that connect the urban with the natural environment that still remains there. Their goal is to capture the potential aspects of what they call “the symbiotic city”, a relational concept of place in which, they believe, a retro-dependence with the living substrate already and always exists.

The premiere was held online because of the restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic
