The exhibition Slight Chance by Pilvi Takala (Finland, 1981), curated by Theodor Ringborg at Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm and expanded and adapted for Fabra i Coats - Barcelona Contemporary Art Centre as a prologue, is the program’s first textual incursion through an artist who basically works with images and time. An analysis rooted in sociology dealt with through the performance that the artist develops in the public space to force situations that are anomalous and unrelated to the rules that govern our social, political and economic order. Situations that demand of everyone involved a new and unexpected exercise in renegotiation —more or less pleasant, more or less uncomfortable— of what has happened.
