Trained as an architect, something of a sociologist and primarily a stage director, Jordi Colomers uses his videographic fictions to explore the manner in which urban development can affect human behaviour. From a Situationist road movie in the midst of the pampa to a gypsy caravan parked in a Belgian shopping centre, via Niemeyer’s utopian city of Brasilia, his improbable voyages, on the borders of reality and fiction, strive to show that architecture is above all a decor and that any space can be transformed into a theatre stage.
