Countdown with Comediants at La Pedrera. Daily ritual of time-related fantasy characters on the façade of La Pedrera, designed to express and share the emotion of the arrival of the year 2000.
During the first part of the ritual, a page is torn from a calendar and deposited in the “urn of time going by”.
In the second part of the ritual, each day, a different special guest, an outstanding figure from one or other sector of our society makes a special wish for the year 2000 and launches it into the air inside a plastic bottle suspended from a small balloon.
26 September 1999. Façade of the La Pedrera Building in Barcelona.
