The Project-based exhibition continues travelling across Gipuzkoa. It stayed at the Parketxe de Pagoeta from March to September 2020 and, despite restrictions, it was visited by some 3,000 visitors during this period. Then the exhibition landed in Lizarrusti, the Parketxe of Aralar where it was visited by more than 2,000 visitors until February.
Final touches (replacing oddly some plants that did not survive and reconfiguring the fence) were put in place successfully despite weather conditions.
