El Arca del Agua


Parco Natural de Penyagolosa, Valencia, Spain

About 100 water containers, wood, bamboo. L: 11m

Since the Middle Age, members of 5 villages of the area walk as pilgrims to an ermitage, up a
mountain, singing in latin their prayer to God to send them rain. Noah built an ark to save creation
from water. My proposal was to build an ark to save water. I walked door to door of these 5 villages
to ask the inhabitants to contribute by offering a container that would be placed on this Ark I built.
They filled the containers with water and sang their prayers.
