Ajuntament Vell welcomes selection of contemporary art from collection of Cati Verdera

cartell 2020 I. EsculturesOn Monday 15 June at 6.00pm, a new display will settle into the municipal gallery space. ‘Una col·lecció d'art contemporani: I. Escultures’ is the first in a series of shows from the collection of celebrated gallery owner and resident of La Mola, Cati Verdera, who in 2019 treated the island to a selection of works by Erwin Broner. The new show will be at the Ajuntament Vell until Saturday 27 June.

The exhibition contains 16 pieces from 9 artists: Manolo Paz, Xavier Laka, Florentino Díaz, Joaquim Camp, Mario de Ayguavives, Pamen Pereira, Laura Lio, Manu Muniategiandigoikoetxea and Carlos Pazos.

The sculpted work is varied in terms of both techniques showcased and materials employed: one piece is of sculpted granite, others are objects strewn together into visual poems, with artists turning alternately to wood, cardboard, rusted metal, steel, wire, rubber, glass and wax as well.

Produced by Trampolí Mecànic and curated by Manolo Oya, the show also benefitted from the collaboration of the Consell de Formentera. According to Oya, “Cati Verdera’s impulse is, first, to share Broner’s oeuvre with the world, and second, to share her own collection with the people of Formentera”. By Oya’s lights, the collection constitutes “a veritable store of human sensitivity”, adding, “The very decision to share it is an exercise in generosity and social activism”.

Marià Villangómez library resumes lending and returns

cartell covid biblio CATStarting tomorrow, Thursday 14 May, the Formentera Department of Culture will once again offer islanders the possibility of borrowing and returning material at Biblioteca Marià Villangómez. Individuals wishing to check out documents must schedule an appointment by sending an email to biblioteca@conselldeformentera.cat or telephoning 971 32 33 86 between 4.15pm and 7.15pm, Monday to Friday. Catalogue inquiries will also be tended by email or over the phone. The lending service will be open weekdays from 5.00pm to 7.00pm.

Education and culture chief Susana Labrador called it “the first step towards the island’s cultural and educational reboot” and insisted the goal was to “give islanders access to as many public services as possible, including cultural programming off-line”. “Preventing the spread of Covid-19 means a maximum level of safety must be involved”, she said, “so the process will take some time”.

Returns
A box will be set up at the door of the library building for drop-offs made between 11.00am and 1.00pm or 4.00pm and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday. Librarygoers can also drop off documents they’ve borrowed when they go in for an appointment. Returned material will be placed in quarantine for a fortnight.

Whether checking something out or making a return, library visitors must respect two-metre physical distancing requirements and apply hand sanitiser. Face masks will also be recommended.

The library will not be available for document review or studying. And in addition to the computer lab remaining closed, neither the printing and photocopy service nor Wi-Fi will be available for the time being. No in-person activities will take place during confinement de-escalation.

International Dance Day

Cartell 2020 Dia de la DansaTomorrow, the Consell de Formentera will celebrate International Dance Day by hosting a projection of several very special videos made by students of the School of Music and Dance and the youth drop-in centre’s Dansa Urbana course. Recent years have seen dancers giving public demonstrations to mark the day. While this year they were unable to congregate, at least physically, the event unfolded virtually instead.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, International Dance Day, the “Formentera es queda a casa” (Formentera is staying home) Facebook page will host a video mashup of local celebrations in years past, plus a demo shot during confinement by students of the School of Music and Dance and Casal de Joves.
