Drawing on the understanding of space through embodied memories and over a methodology that includes archival research, storytelling, human relations and visual arts, Mythical Truths envisions an alternative school model where decision making occurs on the authority to its own people. Students, professors, technicians, models, administrative personnel and others that constitute the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, are invited to share memories or their future aspirations as they walk through and around the school buildings. Their stories will be recorded in an archive and gain momentum through their sculptural and sound translation in space. This way a polyphonic landscape will be created where personal truths and collective myths shape the identity of the institution. The final outcome of the artistic research will address how an archive of untold stories, when activated through art, can become a method that privileges pluralism and inspires change. Mythical Truths stems from the necessity to look into the Academy as an educational and cultural system where sculpture and archiving can amplify or sustain its social diversity.
