Jaime Pitarch / Jabón de Alepo / àngels barcelona 2016

Jabón de Alepo (2014-2016) (Aleppo Soap), is Jaime Pitarch’s new project for which the artist required the voluntary participation of more than 400 people coming from a wide variety backgrounds, convened by the artist to be filmed in his studio in Barcelona, over the course of five hours on the same day. The universal gesture of hand washing was filmed using an overhead sequence shot of the hands of all participants, one after the other, repeating the same action over and over again thus making the soap bar wane until its disappearance.
