about

Gerard Boyer, L’Ametlla de Mar, 1974. Actually in Tarragona.

Formed at l’Escola d’Arts of the Diputació de Tarragona, and across different seminars and workshops. He decides to focus their projects on observing the relation between the time and intimate experience in relation with memory subjects. In parallel, focuses its attention on the boundaries between urban and nature, working to identify the relationship between feelings and the environment in which they occur, and that inner territory closely linked to our experiential relationship.
