Artículo en abc.es sobre el 10º aniversario de Tate Modern y el proyecto 'Mataró Chauffeur Service' de Martí Anson en colaboración con Latitudes

Link al artículo aquí. Extracto del texto de Javier Díaz-Guardiola publicado en la web del ABC.es, 6 Mayo 2010:

"Un taxi de ida y vuelta"
El evento, de carácter gratuito y abierto a todo el mundo, iniciativa del artista Maurizio Cattelan y comisariado por Cecilia Alemani y Massimiliano Gioni, llevará por nombre «No Soul for Sale. A Festival of Independents», y entre los más de sesenta espacios de arte independientes convocados (de White Columns de Nueva York a e-flux de Berlín o la Mountain School of Arts de Los Ángeles) habrá participación española, y no nos referimos a su director, Vicente Todolí.


Así, la oficina curatorial Latitudes colaborará con el artista catalán Martí Anson, que, con el proyecto «Mataró Chauffeur Service», se convierte –convenientemente dado de alta y pertrechado como tal– en taxista, para trasladar su coche tuneado como un Spanish cab hasta Londres y empleando la Sala de Turbinas como aparcamiento del mismo. Durante los días que dure el festival, el vehículo se transformará en sala de proyecciones de los vídeos de creadores como Jan Dibbets, Roman Keller o Bik van der Pol, con los que ha trabajado Latitudes. La ruta del viaje y sus andanzas pueden seguirse en el blog http://lttds.blogspot.com Es su particular manera de celebrar estos últimos diez años que serán analizados este fin de semana en las páginas de ABCD."

'Mataró Chauffeur Service' – graphic identity of the project

Latitudes is soon participating in the London edition of 'No Soul for Sale – A Festival of Independents' which will take place in the Turbine Hall in Tate Modern, from 14–16 May, coinciding with the museum's 10th Anniversary celebrations.
In response to the need to travel to London, Mataró-based artist Martí Anson (1967) has proposed to set up the company “Mataró Chauffeur Service”, and drive Latitudes from Barcelona [41º 23’N, 2º 11’E] to London [51°30′N 0°7′W] and back. Legally registering his employment as a driver, designing the livery of the single vehicle fleet and his uniform, and the journey to Tate Modern and back (including the ferry journey Santander–Portsmouth) all form a part of the project.
Here we present the graphic identity of Anson's chauffeur service, designed by the artist in collaboration with Barcelona-based graphic designer and publisher ferranElOtro.


We are very pleased to announce that the car has been kindly provided by BMW.
And here is our chauffeur...
And last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank the generous support of the Institut Ramon Llull, the SEACEX (Sociedad Estatal para la Acción Cultural Exterior), the Institut Municipal d'Acció Cultural of the Ajuntament de Mataró, Galeria Toni Tàpies, Barcelona, as well as thanking the in-kind-sponsorship provided by Loreak Mendian.

Poster for 'No Soul for Sale: A Festival of Independents' Turbine Hall Tate Modern, London, 14-16 May and mention in 'The New York Times' (22 April)

Above Latitudes' poster for 'No Soul for Sale' (see posters by other participants here).

The project was briefly mentioned in Carol Vogel's article 'Inside Art' in The New York Times last Thursday (scroll down until you find the heading 'Tate Modern Free-for-All').

"...The Spanish artist Martí Anson will drive two curators, who make up the collective Latitudes, from their base in Barcelona to London by taxi and park inside Turbine Hall. “That will be their space,” Mr. Gioni said. Mr. Anson has designed the car and his chauffeur’s uniform."

Anson will be give a talk on Friday 14 May, 2.30–3pm
