Gilbert Herreyns' El bosc i la Mola exhibition

expoherreynsYesterday the doors of the old town hall exhibition space opened on Gilbert Herreyns' exposition El bosc i la Mola ('The forest and la Mola'). The culling of work by the Belgian artist and longtime Formentera habitué is made up of driftwood engravings, tableaux adorned with pigments and pine needles and sculptures of savina juniper branches. All of the materials are found by the artist on our island.

The exposition is part of a larger selection of Herreyns' work displayed at the Museu d'Art Contemporani d'Eivissa between April and July, and prompted his confession: “I couldn't help but give a special place to these Formentera-born creations”. The CiF councillor of culture, Susana Labrador, underscored the immense quality of the art Herreyns produces. El bosc i la Mola falls within the on-going programme of Sant Jaume festivities and can be visited Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. until 31 July.
