    On the occasion of its 90th anniversary, PEN Català, along with The Vicereine Image Center, the MACBA and the CCCB, has promoted the installation of Perejaume. That we should be drawing with our ways of living. Between June 7 and August 31 this phrase will light every evening to Carme street of Barcelona, ??between Rambla and the street of Jerusalem. Registration of this work wants to remind the public space linguistic rights and freedom of expression.


    That we should be drawing with our ways of living was originally installed in the Descent of Mercy, the old quarter of Tarragona, in 2000. The piece is visible at sunset on power street lighting and displays the phrase into four fragments that dilate reading. As pedestrians moving along the sidewalk, the work incorporates his journey along the route of the street. The statement refers to a design that escapes the control of the author to make way for a form produced unconsciously and collectively. The work does not impose any reading and offers to accommodate as many interpretations as you like. On this occasion, but a coup installed Carme Street open and polysemic sense causes honors imprisoned writers and the defense of linguistic rights. That we should be drawing with our ways of living happens a cry of resistance to any attempt to appropriate individual or collective wills.
