Students in pottery course display work at "Ajuntament Vell"

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that from 21 to 26 February, the "Ajuntament Vell" gallery will house a collection of work from students in a pottery workshop led by Tania Agredano.

This year's exhibition is the first to have a specific theme: it encompasses research carried out by students on water, air, earth and fire. "These four elements make up the world of ceramics and, at the same time, are the so-called four essential elements in life", said Agredano.

The instructor challenged students, alone or in groups, to find ways to artistically express an abstract concept with a technique which humans have used since ancient times. Thirty-two pieces made during the course by eight students will be exhibited. The artists used assorted techniques, colours and clays to craft a distinct piece to represent each element. Agredano said that many of her ceramists in training played with metaphor, feelings, sensations and even the abstract, highlighting the fact that "art is a means of free expression, where we have the opportunity to express ourselves without taking into account style or what is explicitly stated".
Doors open at 6.00pm on Monday 21 February. The hours of the Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" are 11.00pm to 2.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
