Monday 29 August, Laura Larocca unveils 'Absorción' at 'Ajuntament Vell'

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to announce that from 30 August to 10 September, "Ajuntament Vell" exhibition space will host "Absorción" by visual artist Laura Larocca and collaborating artist Lucas Marín.

Sweeping through the room like a tide, the installation features paintings of varying formats, a work table and a film in which the artist shines a light on the experience of Formentera landscapes. "Absorción" also showcases the marine sponge skeletons with which Larocca crafts her paintings.

Schooled in Fine Arts in her native Argentina, Larocca has displayed work in Italy, Finland and France. For the three years she has called Formentera home, a special agreement with the Balearic Ministry of Environment has coupled Larocca's artistic research with found marine sponges.

"Absorción" opens Monday 29 August at 8.00pm and can be seen at Sala d'Exposicions "Ajuntament Vell" from Monday to Saturday, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

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

Tenor Joan Laínez and pianist Francesc Blanco in concert

The Formentera Office of Culture is pleased to report that Wednesday 24 August from 10.00pm, Jardí de ses Eres in Sant Francesc will be the scene of a concert by tenor Joan Laínez and pianist Francesc Blanco.

The two Mallorca natives will present a wide-ranging repertoire spanning Verdi, Puccini, Agustín Lara, Matilde Escalas and more. The artists will also premiere T'he buscat dins l'obscuritat, a piece which was composed by Mallorca-born Xavier Gelabert with lyrics by Formentera's own Maria Ferrer.

Laínez is an opera soloist at Teatre Principal de Palma and, in 2021, came in second at the international competition Corsica Lírica. He is also the winner of the In Opera Veritas award and, in 2022, earned the audience choice award at the Jole di Maria competition in Tivoli. As a choral conductor, Laínez has conducted various national and international concerts.

Francesc Blanco has worked with singers such as Ainhoa Arteta, Montserrat Martí i Caballé, Ketevan Kemklidze and more. Since 1996, he has been a singing accompaniment teacher at Mallorca's Professional Conservatory of Music.

This concert is part of the fourth MallorcÒpera Festival.

Promoting Catalan in local commerce, hospitality and services

The Language Advisory Service (Servei d'Assessorament Lingüístic, SAL) of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to announce assistance to promote the use of Catalan in commerce, hospitality, industry and services on Formentera.

The assistance is intended to cover the costs of Catalan-language actions –business and vehicle signage, labels, printed material and restaurant menus, merchandising, work clothes and design of web pages, QR codes and electronic platforms– implemented between 1 January 2021 and 30 September 2022, with up to €1,000 per beneficiary.

Through collaboration with the local business community, this line of aid seeks to extend the use of Catalan in socioeconomic activities and, in particular, "to influence the linguistic landscape of the island, which is a reflection of the vitality of Catalan and an essential part of its normalisation", explains Raquel Guasch, councillor of language policy.

Interested parties can submit their application and supporting documentation until 15 October 2022 at the Citizen Information Office (OAC) or at the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC). Application forms can be obtained at SAL (Carrer del Arxiduc Lluís Salvador, 2) or downloaded from the Consell de Formentera website.
