Cabins to think is a tour around the spaces, which XIX and XX Centuries’ philosophers and creators used to get away and work far from everyday urban maelstrom.
Trough Eduardo Outeiro’s photographs of those cabins in their original locations, their blueprints and models, and a plant collection of each area, the project studies the relation between deliberately chosen privacy and creation processes.
Thus, the importance of the thinking-space’s organization in creation is noticeable, through the case of philosophers Ludwig Wittgenstein and Martin Heidegger, composers Edvard Grieg and Gustav Mahler, playwrightAugust Strindberg, writers Knut Hamsun, George Bernard Shaw and Virginia Woolf, poet Dylan Thomas, filmmaker Derek Jarman, and explorer and writer Thomas Edward Lawrence.
The exhibition is at Cerezales Antonino y Cinia Foundation (FCAYC) and it is an extended project of Eduardo Outeiro, curated by Alfredo Olmedo and Alberto Ruiz de Samaniego, with collaboration of Luis Seoane Foundation (A Coruña, Spain). Here has become relevant as FCAYC is currently building its own “cabin to think” –the new headquarters- and as part of its action lines related to plants or rural knowledge.
