The match took place in London, in a venue called “The Oval”. But football is more than just a mainstream sport, I experience football as a universal language, that

I developed the project over the artistic residency I took part in 2019, through a collection of intimate portraits of the volunteers in the heart of the festival: Cal Galbart, an abandoned old factory, in dialogue with minimal urban landscapes of the town. nacho-rivera.com
