In the exhibition Written on Water, thought and words come together, leaving the door open to experiencing other forms of exploration.

To this end, Èlia Llach has invited two people who in some way have always accompanied her. Miguel Morey, with whom Èlia questioned thought, and Ester Pino, with whom she questioned words.

Meanwhile, the prompter of the exhibition keeps asking: What are you looking for? What are you missing?
