Barbarian poems , consists of the compilation of texts, phrases, fragments of pages, notebooks, postcards, notes, found in the streets and in the garbage of Barcelona during the year 2017. These phrases accompany fifteen photographs taken the same year in the Agrarian Park from Barcelona in Colonia Güell in Barcelona,​​ a place completely unrelated to artistic creation and belonging to the outskirts of the city.
To each of the fifteen photographs belongs a phrase taken from the trash, anonymous, abject and barbaric due to its "unpleasant" origin.
The project Poemas barbaros juxtaposes the text and the image, raising an "artistic-exhibition" character but above all giving great importance to rejected, decontextualized and anonymous texts and phrases to give them another context and meaning, constantly accompanying unfocused, pictorial, landscape photographs movement and with a wide poetic potential corresponding no-place, a place in traffic, where the photographic image is disappearing.
