Swimming Horsesis a book that emerged from the desire to review the elements that have accompanied the creations of Mal Pelo throughout the past twelve years. On one side it presents the photographs of Jordi Bover, which as well as the visual force and depth they contain, enable different aspects of the work to be observed: The movement, the use of objects, the lighting, the gestures and presence, the tensions of the space and some of his own codes and tools.

On the other side, the voices of the people who have followed the evolution of the group, their precise view on the way in which Mal Pelo inhabits the scene and constructs a fragmented dramaturgy that goes hand-in-hand with the different languages and the strength of the performers.

Mal Pelo is a group founded by Pep Ramis and María Muñoz in 1989, dedicated to the creation and exhibition of performances. Their artistic work, based on the constant search for languages, combines movement, video, text and original music. Their exhibition proposals as well as their video creations and publications are equally important.

With an extensive national and international career, their works are acknowledged by the critics and the public and have been awarded with different prizes.
