Sewn rendition from a photograph of adobe buildings, Saturday 16 October 2004. Located by Narelle Jubelin to reflect the exhibition sites of Ângela Ferreira’s temporary installations ‘Double Sided Parts I and II’ at both Nieu Bethesda, South Africa and Marfa, Texas. These buildings sit beside the haystacks and adjacent to the Centro Penitenciaría (prison) located on the National Highway N630, 313km outside Salamanca. In a repeated television news reports this prison was erroneously cited as a probable location for discussions between members of ETA and alleged Islamic extremists by members of the Spanish conservative party, Partido Popular, in the wake of the Atocha train bombings in Madrid of March 11, 2004.
