I'd rather not do it

City Hall (access through Plaça Sant Jaume)

Sculptor: Antoni Llena
Materials: Stainless Steel

The large work conducted by Antoni Llena in the courtyard of the building Novíssim the City Council consists of two sticks joined by a jagged strip, which could function as a symbolic clothesline hung on all memory of the city . A metallic ribbon, which reminds rolls ink typewriters or movie cinematogràfica- are engraved the phrase "rather not do it," the phrase constantly repeated that the character of the Melville writer or story Bartleby (1853). Bartleby is an office that how your boss asks you to review a text or start a job, reply with the laconic phrase I would prefer not to (rather not do), a form of courtesy that used to be in a constant state of alert but without undertaking any company. Despite its ineffectiveness as a worker only exists as a clerk Bartleby, and comes to stay and live in the office, blend in with the furniture.
