Montse Guillen, on rejection in the kitchen of insects


Should an artist know how to make PDFs? What’s a sealed bid? What call should call jurors apply to? How many synopses should one write per project? How does one get over the nth rejection? Cheaper than psychoanalysis or a bottle of Jameson’s, Yo sé perder is a fest of rejected artistic proposals. Inspired by the library thought up by US writer Richard Brautigan – star of our flyer – for the keeping of discarded manuscripts, we’ve created this cycle where we will host a selection of guests, each presenting a piece of work that received in reply two joined letters bluntly spelling out the word ‘no’. They’re coming for us!

Esteban Fuene de Colombi was born in Buenos Aires in 1980. He has lived in Paris, Barcelona and Geneva and works in various places around th world. He’s a poet, stage director and performer.

Marc Caellas was born in Barcelona in 1974. He has lived in London, São Paulo, Miami, Caracas, Bogota and Buenos Aires. He’s a writer, stage director and curator for cultural projects that meld literature, theatre and contemporary art.

In 2011, in Bogotá, they jointly created Compañía La Soledad, which devises walkabout, site-specific and staged performances, such as El paseo de Robert Walser, Juego de cartas and Bolaño, vuelve a casa.

Between them, they’ve collected quite a few rejections.
