This exhibition features works by a series of artists associated with the Bòlit, Centre d'Art Contemporani de Girona, and Addaya, Centre d'Art Contemporani d'Alaró, centres which share an interest in creating narrative images linked to the landscape.

 

The common denominator in the work of Jorge Fuembuena, Alicia Kopf, Jennis Li Cheng Tien, Jordi Morell, Tomás Pizá, Aleix Plademunt, Andrés Senra and Esteve Subirah is the natural or urban landscape, where different types of action and human relations can be observed. Through images the artists critically analyse spaces which at first glance only express their physical presence or character. They attract our attention, making us investigate what is happening in these spaces or ask ourselves how what happens in a landscape changes our vision of it and the way we think about it. All these artists are interested in analysing and reflecting on the narrative capacity of images. The works they present are the result of research, travel, artistic residence, exhaustive study and their own experiences or those of others. These are works which can come to have strong critical and political undertones, even though this is not immediately apparent. They use creative resources which include an approach similar to documentaries, reflections on the veracity of testimony, searching for the significance of places and actions, the creation of narrative and visual sequences, the recovery of archives and material which has been found, and the role of collective memory and experience in the interpretation of the work.

 

The exhibition aims to create a dialogue between the spectators and the artists, between the images and our memory, between seeing and reflecting. It is thus open to new interpretations, your own.
