The Belgian artist Louis de Cordier has acquired a strip of land south of Granada, at the foot of the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada. Here he has created an underground library, with the scope of gathering together and representing human knowledge through drawings, maps and the seeds of non-genetically modified plants. Anyone can contribute to this construction by sending a book, which will be catalogued by the artist and included in his library.
A filmmaker and media artist, he lives and works in Helsinki. His work involves an alternation of documentaries, fiction and experimental works and he is constantly looking for extreme and demanding situations. His films have been screened at festivals all over the world.
