Sculptures by Laura Maresc in spotlight at Centre Gabrielet from August 7-17

laura maresc 2The Formentera Council's department of culture announces that from today until Friday, August 17, the exhibition space at Centre Gabrielet will host a display of sculpted work by Laura Maresc.

'I Sea'
Drawing influences from arte povera and land art, Maresc's “I Sea” offers a perspective situated halfway between the abstract and figurative languages which are inspired by the island, playing with the island's chromatic colour scales and its landscape in motion.

Explains the artist, “nature is a mirror revealing the most profound in each of us. Skin becomes permeable, and we understand what is going on with those metaphors on the other side of our eyelids”. To hear Maresc tell it, Formentera is “constant horizon”. “It's opening”, she says, “Three-hundred sixty degrees of inputs from every one of the senses, inspiring that beautiful alchemy of feeling and expression”.

Born in the Andorran Pyrenees, Maresc says she has long maintained a deep connection to her natural surroundings. “Whether as a sculptor or performance-oriented dancer, I've always had a fascination for feeling out the boundaries between the body and its surroundings”, she says.

“I Sea” opens this evening at seven and will remain on view every day from 10.00am to 2.00pm and 5.00pm to 9.00pm in the Centre Gabrielet gallery.
