Jeleton IN RESiDENCE at the School Josep Comas i Solà

Jeleton are Maria Angeles Sanchez Alcantara (Murcia, 1975) and Jesus Arpal Moya, (Barakaldo, 1972).

A team to operate in iconographic, literary, musical repertoires. To propose self-taught practices and the publication of interim results for discussion. To carry authorship situations inexperience, humor, appropriation. To disperse the results in space, time and distribution channels, making it difficult to deactivation by the presentation context.

They have produced and presented their work in various exhibitions, workshops and documentary and research projects (consonni, Bilbao, 2012; CA2M, Móstoles, 2012; ENPAP, Bilbao, 2012; Proyecto Rampa, Madrid, 2012; Sametitled, Berlin, 2012; General Public, Berlin, 2012; Arizko Dorretxea, Basauri, 2011; TEXTO, Barcelona, 2011; Manifesta 8, Murcia, 2010; Casa Vecina, Mexico City, 2010; Espacio Abisal, Bilbao, 2008, among others).


The Joan Miró Foundation takes part in the IN RESIDENCY project through the programme at the Espai 13 (Space 13) exhibition site at the foundation itself. Over the 2016-2017 period, Espai 13 hosts the exhibition season “Peu a fora. Expedicions i diàspores” (One Foot Out. Expeditions and Diasporas), curated by Jordi Antas. The starting point for this cycle is the voluntary displace of a community from its place of birth and growth. In this case, the shows focus on emerging Catalan artists. The season presents a snapshot of the Catalan art scene from a position of distance, inviting artists to explore different options for professional development and observing how this affects their work in a series of six complementary but independent episodes. Although “One Foot Out. Expeditions and Diasporas” does not open until autumn 2016, through its education department and in cooperation Jordi Antas, the Miró Foundation participates in the seventh edition IN RESIDENCY by connecting the programme to the exhibition cycle. This cooperation will span two seasons, the present edition and the following period (2015-2017).

The project proposed for this seventh edition of IN RESIDENCY is based on a reversed or opposite path to that suggested by the exhibition season at Espai 13: a visual artist from elsewhere who is installed in the Catalan context in general and on the Barcelona art scene in particular will be taking part in the IN RESIDENCY programme.

Biography written in 2015

School Josep Comas i Solà

This year, SIN Josep Comas i Solà, which took part in the fifth and sixth editions of EN RESiDÈNCiA (2013-2014 and 2014-2015), is participating once more, with a group of third- and fourth-year ESO pupils from the “Open Classroom” group.


The Institut Comas i Solà (Trinitat Vella, Sant Andreu) was created in 1990 in response to pressure from residents keen to ensure that local youngsters did not have to travel to other neighbourhoods in order to pursue their secondary education. The centre is named after Josep Comas i Solà, an astronomer who popularised science and promoted modern astronomy in Catalonia and was also the director of the Fabra Observatory.
