Sisyphus (2018) is an action that consists of carrying a rock from the bottom of La Mola, the highest mountain of the Natural Park of Sant Llorenç de Munt i l'Obac (1104 m.), following the Camí dels Monjos (The monk's path) to the summit, where the Romantic Monastery of Sant Llorenç de Munt is placed and then undoing the path again to the starting point.

 

In the action one of the cycles of Sisyphus' punishment is reenacted as an strategy to generate an absurd situation - carrying innecessary burden - in the dynamics of an excursion in order to activate the interaction with its participants and open a dialogue on the project itself and today's validity of  The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus.

After the action, the rock was placed in the beginning of the path.

The action was framed within the exhibition 1918: War, Tradition and Future comissioned by Joan Vila and organized by the Academy of Fine Arts of Sabadell and the Sabadell Museum with the support of the Creation Factory Estruch and the UES (the hiking association of Sabadell). It was developed in collaboration with a historical gastronomic experience by Biscuits BCN Collective (Sergi Freixes and Ivan Merino) as a commemorative act because of the 100 years of the foundation of la Colla de Sabadell (a remarkable art collective in the XIV Century).
