Paradís perdut, Can Felipa, 28/04-19/06

Paradís perdut -lost paradise- is a collective show, curated by Ignacio Somovilla for the Can Felipa Center, that presents different ways to approach the idea of garden, with different languages, in different contexts, with different results. The exhibition doesn't pretend somehow to offer more than a partial, subjective and fragmented vision among the very large artistic creation that stems from the idea of garden.

Paradís perdut offers considerations on the current status of the garden, as a stage and above all as a metaphor, as a place for relations, leisure, contemplation, manipulation, revendication, heterotopy. It includes works by 11 artists: Jordee Ayuso, Silvia Burés i Miguel Urrestarazu, Pau Faus, Jerónimo Hagerman, Julie Houle, Lola Lasurt, Cecilia Martín, Sito Mújica, Mickaël Tramoy (homesession 4th resident), Rubén Verdú.

When: Opening on April 28th at 8pm. Till June 19th
Where: Can Felipa, C/Pallars 277 Barcelona

Daniel Nevers in Urban Matrix at Chandra Cerrito Gallery Oakland, 06/02-26/03

Daniel Nevers' Cinderfella sculpture is currently on show in the Urban Matrix collective exhibition at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary Gallery. Urban Matrix features artists whose attention is captured by the views, materials, objects and feeling of the city, reveal urban qualities that are captivating, true and emotive.

Daniel Nevers’ precarious gravity-defying arrangements of found objects put viewers at a subtle unease. Cinderfella is stacked cinder blocks, a fundamental in the urban environment. Blocks are bound to one another with orange nylon straps that seem to aid only slightly to securing the stack, which is actually kept from falling by other less visible means.

The orange dashes interrupting the concrete highlight the rhythmic quality of the blocks’ rectilinear patterns. Objects normally considered utilitarian become subjects of observation, contemplation and wonder. In the line of ready-mades, minimal art as well as arte povera, Daniel Nevers creates an installation whose emotive potential is as strong as the aspect of its material.

Where: Chandra Cerrito Contemporary, Oakland
When: 06/02 - 28/03

Mireia Saladrigues, Zoolar Eclipse at the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art (Finland), 06/03-07/06

Mireia Saladrigues presents Zoolar Eclipse at the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art (Finland) in the framework of Capsula Expeditions: Capsula’s cross-disciplinary expeditions, straddling the borderline between art and science, study and marvel at natural phenomena through personal experience. The first expedition was made in summer 2008 to Siberia, where the total eclipse of the Sun could be observed. The base of the expedition was set up at the Novosibirsk Zoo, from which it continued on to the Altai wilderness and all the way to the Moon. Travelling slow, using methods of transport that only moderately burden the environment, is a key aspect of the expeditions.

Mireia aims to understand and find new dimensions of the surrounding world through her research projects. With Zoolar Eclipse she invited one hundred Zoo visitors to actively participate in observing the changes to the animals and themselves during an eclipse.

Where: Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art
When: opening on march, 6th at 7pm. Presentation of the expedition at the Kiasma theatre at 6pm.
