Capses secretes contains the space of freedom that Joan Ponç strived for in the waiting rooms of all the hospitals in the South of France he had to visit, for five years, due to serious health problems. These ‘secret boxes’ are formed by 424 drawings in India ink and watercolour, which the artist arranged in the series “Minigeperuts”, “Estranya”, “Degollats”, “Cap-espelmes”, “Èxtasi”, “Espurnes”, “Irregulars”, “Degenerats” and “Celestial”. The book also presents a number of approaches to Ponç’s work by Jordi Carulla-Ruiz, Sílvia Muñoz d’Imbert, Arnau Puig and Alèxia Sinoble, and reprints texts by Rosa Queralt, Luis Goytisolo, Fernando Arrabal and Jean-Clarence Lambert, among others, written specifically for the catalogue of the first exposition of Capses secretes, in 1983.
