Muntsabee’s “Vida Morta” takes up at Centre ‘Gabrielet’

foto 2020 vida morta 1Today through 8 September, Centre Antoni Tur ‘Gabrielet’ will host Vida Morta, an exhibit by the Barcelona-born and Formentera-based photographer Muntsa Darné, alias Muntsabee.

Vida Morta at its core is a reckoning with death”, confides the artist. “It’s about my uneasiness with regard to things that have ceased to exist or simply transformed into something else. Loss is a profound feeling at times difficult to express”, she asserts.

Darné insists each of her pieces is a creative process meant to transfer an emotion, and to share it she uses words and symbols of beings that are no longer here: a butterfly, a coded letter in a book...

The exhibit will be on view 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 10.00pm until 8 September (closed Wednesdays and Sundays).

Laura Maresc’s “Preludi”

cartell 2020 laura marescDoors at the ‘Ajuntament Vell’ exhibition space open this Monday 31 August at 7.00pm for Laura Maresc’s Preludi. All week long save for Sundays and Monday mornings, islanders can see the show from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm until 12 September.

A reflection on the fragility of landscapes that works by turning the spotlight on nature, Preludi is an ensemble of sculpted work largely fashioned from objects in dialogue with their natural surroundings at the moment Maresc collects them. The artist’s compositions occupy a playing field in perpetual, if fragile, equilibrium, and the concept of the nest —a recurring theme in Maresc’s work— transports the beholder to place at once original and primitive. It is, according to the artist, a jumping-off point.

Island bookworms get look at Rafel Nadal’s ‘summer sea’

cartell 2020 rafel nadalThe Formentera Department of Culture reports that this Monday 31 August, the Marià Villangómez library will host an 8.00pm presentation of author and journalist Rafel Nadal’s Mar d’estiu: Una memòria mediterrània in the Jardí de ses Eres. The event will be presided over by Nadal and Obra Cultural Balear chairwoman Maria Teresa Ferrer.

Among the works penned by 66-year-old Girona native Rafel Nadal i Farreras are his 2011 chronicle of power Els mandarins; the 2012 Premi Josep Pla-winner Quan érem feliços, and a 2013 family saga unfolding between Catalunya and Champagne (France) and entitled Quan en dèiem xampany. His 2015 work La maledicció dels Palmisano was translated into 22 languages, while his most recent effort, 2017’s La senyora Stendhal, has already been translated into five. Currently a staff writer at La Vanguardia, Nadal is also a frequent contributor to RAC1 radio and TV3. At the helm of El Periódico de Catalunya from May 2006 to February 2010, Nadal presided over the newspaper’s selection for numerous awards, including the Catalan Generalitat’s National Communication Prize.

Nadal will present Formentera audiences with “a crash-course on the Mediterranean and life’s little pleasures. It’s an invitation to observe and discover the stories behind the places and the people who inhabit them. (...) An homage to the sea of Nadal’s youth. In the first of three parts, the author sets out to shed light on the reasons of his Mediterranean connection, its true nature and particular significance for Nadal. Part two contains the author’s description of sojourns in Mediterranean backdrops like Stromboli, Icaria, Hydra and Portlligat. (...) The third and final segment finds Nadal narrating his return. It is a reflection on the experience of travel and the Mediterranean’s mark on the course of Western history and culture.”

Partnership for Ràdio Illa content production

foto 2020 conveni ACAFConsell de Formentera president Alejandra Ferrer and the spokesman of the Audiovisual Cultural Association of Formentera (ACAF), Álvaro Mendoza, made official a joint action agreement for content production at public radio station Ràdio Illa. Under the terms of the deal, ACAF will receive €30,000 to produce content for Formentera’s public radio station. Cultura consellera Susana Labrador was also present at the signing.

The Consell owns the broadcasting license for municipal radio station 107.9FM, a public service catering to people of Formentera and designed to  enrich and invigorate local culture.

Production of content for Ràdio Illa has been administered for some time now by ACAF—a non-profit aimed at disseminating local culture, promoting media and encouraging the dynamic engagement of islanders in the local cultural scene.

In 2019, a joint action agreement valued at €50,000 was clinched between the two entities. The Covid-19 crisis and the invocation of emergency orders at the beginning of 2020 made the signing of a new partnership temporarily impossible, and Ràdio Illa received a €20,000 advance in order to continue operating.
