Trailer and photo documentation of the exhibition ‘Things Things Say’



Things Things Say’ is an exhibition at Fabra i Coats: Contemporary Art Centre of Barcelona (17 October 2020–17 January 2021) presenting sculpture, photography, films, text and voice by Adrià Julià, Annette Kelm, James N. Kienitz Wilkins, Sarah Ortmeyer, Eulàlia Rovira, Francesc Serra i Dimas, Stuart Whipps, Haegue Yang, as well as meaningful things from the Friends of Fabra i Coats archive. 

‘Things Things Say’ springs from the past of Fabra i Coats—an industrial complex once dedicated to the manufacturing of cotton thread. Taking on the genre of the ‘it-narrative’ in 18th century English literature—as well as the approaches of object journalism and microhistory—the exhibition tacks back-and-forth between exceptionally normal things and the extraordinary global narratives of labour, obsolescence, and the industrialisation of nature, that they trigger.
