Four artists from different disciplines: chef Xabier Gutiérrez, painter Juan Vich, musician Ander Fernández and producer Pello Gutiérrez. Each lends a new slant to a concept based on a single premise: charcoal embers. All four set about exposing their individual takes on the materials, colours, sound, sensations.
Xabier Gutiérrez is a chef. He works in the Restaurante Arzak laboratory on a mission to find new flavours. He has also written numerous cookery books, including El bosque culinario, Asfalto culinario, Cocinar lo menos posible, Cocinar de cine, Harina y arena and Tratado del chocolate. He recently published a roman noir set in the world of gastronomy: El aroma del crimen. In 2014 he directed the short film Txipirones en su tinta. Brasa is the continuation of that short film.
