Archaeological Museum of Tarragona
10th Photographic Spring of Catalonia
April-August 2000


There are two lines into the continuity; the cultural one and the genealogical one. Flesh and stone are the wounds that testify this continuity. On the one hand, the cutting of the umbilical cord cuts short the physical link between two individuals and its scar is on all of us. But on the other hand the “scar” on the stone shows the wish to perpetuate each individual through culture.
Different interventions carried out all over Tarragona’s Archaeological Museum include the archaeological pieces, as the remains of a truncated continuity, remains such as the umbilical cord, which are the marks of this continuity.
