The Àneu valleys are the territory where the contemporary artist Oriol Vilapuig most concen-trates his field of action. Located in the north of the comarca of El Pallars Sobirà, these valleys, with their symbolic potential, overflow-ing with nature, appear dotted with and unified by many Romanesque churches. They run on two axes, one from Sant Pere de Burgal to Alós d’Isil (south to north) and the other from Cervi to Son (east to west). This is the territory where the artist inscribes a micro-story based on the frottagetechnique, a procedure that allows images to appear through contact, not drawing, thus revealing the bas-reliefs sculpted on the fonts that con-tained water and oil, and which we can find in the churches scattered around the territory. These stone containers, dated between the elev-enth and thirteenth centuries, contained the holy water for the ritual of baptism and the oil for other religious rituals and for the church lighting.
In order to present to the public and reflect on the art of the post-war and second avant-garde, we have established strategic alliances with various institutions, both public and private. In this sense, with Intrusive Dialogues we have started a collaboration programme with the Fundació Suñol, to enrich the interpretation of the works of this highly important collection in the context of the historical collections of the Museu Nacional. This agreement is of great importance for the construction of the collection and the contemporary storytelling.
