Maurizio Lamberti displays photos at Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell"

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that from 19 to 30 April the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" will host "Dualislad" by Formentera resident Maurizio Lamberti.

For Lamberti, "Dualislad" expresses the idea of uniting two different visions of the same reality. The photographs in some works are readily distinguishable, while in others, a more careful eye is required to pick out the distinct points of view and motifs. In this way, Lamberti pieces together our island like the pieces of a puzzle. As the artist comments, "These not so visible parts contribute to the uniqueness of the island".

The exhibition, Lamberti's first in 2022 to feature photographs, shows a different view of Formentera through multiple overlapping images. In this way, through varying opacities in the same photograph, we can see a new context with some motifs recognisable to all.

The exhibition opens its doors on Tuesday 19 April at 6.00pm. "Dualislad" will remain on view until 30 April at the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell", Monday to Saturday from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

The exhibition space will be closed Sundays, bank holidays and Monday mornings.

Literary presentation at Marià Villangómez Library for Sant Jordi 2022

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that this April, Marià Villangómez Library has scheduled a book presentation for the Diada de Sant Jordi 2022.

Author Lluís Ferrer will present his book Cómics y censura: De Wonderwoman a Charlie Hebdo at 7.00pm next Thursday 21 April. He will be accompanied by Maite Ferrer. Born in Cala Mestella in 1971, Lluís Ferrer is one of the most prestigious writers, essayists and screenwriters of our time. The writer says that this book reflects the censorship that has always been present in comics, from the 1930s to date. The most recent example of this censorship involved one of the final issues of the Marvel Comics-published series Conan, for which the author drew a young woman in a bikini which was altered for a dress that has nothing to do with the original image.

Cómics y censura was inspired by lectures that Ferrer gave last year, one of which was held at Marià Villangómez Library in December. In addition to the subject matter covered in the lectures, the book includes covers, illustrations and documents of censorship, among other novelties.

Formentera gears up for Téntol, a show for the whole family in the Sant Ferran town square

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that as part of the island's plans to celebrate Sant Jordi, the Manipulats theatre troupe will be on Formentera to perform Téntol.

The 50-minute show, which will take place at 12 noon Saturday 9 April in Sant Ferran's Plaça de l'Església, is free of charge. Reservations are not required to attend.

Téntol is a circus show for families that is based on play and spontaneous movements. The two protagonists, played by Gràcia Moragues and Mateu Canyelles, string together ideas and toys and mobilise a wide range of emotions. With Téntol, Manipulats cast a plea for leisure and recreational time as a way of creating culture, singularities, communities and personalities.

In 2014 Moragues and Canyelles formed Manipulats on Mallorca after training at the Rogelio Rivel Circus Arts Center in Barcelona (2008-2010) and then at Codarts Circus Arts in Rotterdam (2010-2014). The troupe's previous collaborations include work with De Dansers, Circ Bover and Mariantònia Oliver, and they are members of Collectif Temporadas. After Mel-òdic, Salvatges and Trot, Téntol is their most recent creation.
