Project by Xarxa Transversal

 

In 2017 the Transversal Network of Cultural Activities organised an artistic curatorial tender to intervene in public spaces of all the cities in the network (Figueres, Olot, Girona, Granollers, Mataró, Manresa, Sant Cugat, Vilanova i la Geltrú, Reus and Tortosa). The winning project was Womart, a project of the Rebobinart Association.

The main action of the project, will take place on the 14th of April in all the municipalities of the network. These cities will host 10 women artists, which will bring the streets, walls and exhibition spaces alive through graffiti or performances.

In the city of Girona, the artistic group Pedra will create a Recreational and Contemplative Installation of the Universe, with kinetic mobiles inspired by Alexander Calder and the game of "Bòlit".

La Moderna Drumline (Fire drums)

Drumline is a style which, as its name indicates, is based in drums. So, percussion. It's usual to find formations in the United States, Irland, Scotland and Switzerland.

 

La Moderna Drumline is an exclusive pedagogical project from the Percussion Department in the EMMG (School of Modern Music Girona), dedicated to the reading and execution of different drumline scores. It is characterized by its technical complications at the moment of interpretation, both individually and in group formation.


In the production, 30 students of different ages will perform eight works that have been transcribed and adapted to two voices - box and goliat - by the project director and drum teacher, Rafel Rostey.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Art and Gavarres-Girona

Land Art International Meeting

From the 24th March to the 24th of June 

Inauguration: 24th March at 11 am

Presentation of the artists' projects: 22nd March at 7 pm

Bòlit, Centre d'Art Contemporani. Girona

Pou Rodó 7-9, 17004 Girona

 

Land Art is an artistic expression that links ART and NATURE. It is, in fact, a reflection about our relationship with time and nature. Furthermore, art can become a key tool for territorial development, which allows to change the viewer's eyes on the landscape and to value it more.  

It is in this sense that the organizers, Consorci de les Gavarres and the Girona City Hall, promote this event, which invites visitors to discover ephemeral artistic interventions in Les Gavarres. The Gavarres natural area covers a total of 20 municipalities, including the city of Girona, Cassà de la Selva and Celrà, which have joined the initiative in this first edition of the Land Art Bienal. 

The participating artists, from different countries in Europe, Catalonia and Girona, will be creating artworks during a week in the Sant Daniel valley, public spaces in Celrà and in Can Vilallonga (Cassà de la Selva). Moreover, the event will also hold presentations, conferences, workshops, guided visits, and other activities. 

In Girona, the itinerary will go along the Sant Daniel valley, with the Bòlit, Centre d'Art Contemporani. Girona as the meeting point.

ARTISTIC INTERVENTIONS PROGRAM AT THE ELECTRIC HOUSE IN LA PLETERA (L'ESTARTIT)

 

The Site, memory and Salicures Project (2015-2018) is a program of artistic interventions in the framework of the recovery of the marshland La Pletera (l'Estartit) started by Life Pletera.

 

The purpose of these interventions encompasses multiple objectives: integrate cultural action into a scientific project, contribute to the notion of landscape, encourage the concept of site memories, reflect on the idea of regeneration and disseminate landscape intervention with a public purpose. 

With this aim, the local BUIT collective and Bòlit, Centre d'Art Contemporani. Girona have programmed two cycles of artistic interventions in one of the electric booths in a space that is living a desurbanisation process. Each cycle includes the participation of five artists who will take action on the walls of the house, for successive periods of two months, until June 2018.

A documentary record and a series of activities associated with the presentations of the artists complete the program of interventions.

Participating artists 1st cycle: Mar Serinyà (November-December 2016), Jofre Oliveras (January-February 2017), Pep Aymerich & Jordi Esteban (March-April 2017), INDI + collective Buit (May-June 2017) and Nico Feragnoli (July-August 2017).

Participating artists 2nd cycle: Barbara Cardella (September-October 2017),  n'UNDO (January-February 2018), Job Ramos (28th April 2018), Lúa Coderch (18th June 2018) and Pere Noguera (21st July 2018).

Caseta elèctrica La Pletera (L'Estartit)

 

Work will make you free of things you do not want to see

 

Job Ramo's proposal for La Pletera space seeks how man's hand becomes blurred into nature, or vice versa, how nature blurs into the midst of the footprints of a humanized landscape. The artist establishes parallelism based on a series of interventions that are mixed with the elements that make up the space La Pletera.

 

La Pletera is a locality from which the streets of a residential area have been dismantled, a residential area that was never developed. Through a European programme the place has been recovered in a more or less precise form as it was before the street network was urbanized.

 

Some ruins we glorify, others we destroy. Human and financial resources are used either to preserve or erase traces. What is the difference between the Greek-Roman Empúries ruins and those of La Pletera?

 

The artistic intervention of Job Ramos in La Pletera follows the steps of this supposed disappearance. Using a series of interventions that blend into the landscape. These represent some of the protocols that have led pre-existing urban elements to disappear to give way to a reconstructed nature.
