Focus on the Balear Islands, curated by João Silvério, brings together a selection of works by Andreu Maimó, Catalina Julve, Cristòfol Pons and Isabel Servera.
Andreu Maimó presents a selection of 40 drawings that recreate the annual development of his Can Vent garden. Catalina Julve participates with a site specific installation, inspired by the uses and customs of the rural world of Mallorca. Cristòfol Pons presents the project “Brecha”, a work on mixed media paper, which plants a critical reflection on the macrostructures of power. Isabel Servera presents “Labor Calendar”, a compilation in the form of a mural, where 70 drawings represent a mechanized and ruled manual work calendar.
The exhibition was organized by the Institut d`Estudis Baleàrics (IEB), a cultural institution belonging to the Consejería de Turismo, Cultura y Deportes of the Balearic Islands, which works for the visibility and internationalization of Balearic artists in strategic events with external projection.
The selection of artists was made by a jury formed by Mónica Álvarez Careaga, director of Drawing Room Lisboa, João Silvério, curator of Foco Ilhas Baleares, and Karen Andrea Müller, responsible for the visual arts area at IEB.
