Exhibition

From 21 March to 16 July, 2017

From Monday to Sunday, from 10am to 8pm (last access 7.30pm)

Exhibition room of La Pedrera

Passeig de Gràcia, 92

 

The exhibition Frederic Amat_Zoetrope presents a selection of projects for interventions in natural and urban spaces, often associated with architecture, with the aim of drawing a map, a topography of the artist’s work, while seeking the poetic component present in it. The title of the exhibition at La Pedrera, Zoetrope, is a reference to the stroboscopic device consisting of a rotating drum with slits cut in the sides through which the spectator can see a series of drawings which, as they spin, give the illusion of moving. Like a zoetrope, the exhibition intends to show the various facets of Frederic Amat’s work related to the space, architecture, the city and the landscape.

Frederic Amat_Zoetrope is divided into three largely independent sections that between them form a unique play in three acts that provides an excellent opportunity to discover the exuberant and original imaginary that underpins Amat’s life and his art: the first proposes to resurrect the memory of Gaudí’s building by means of an intervention created expressly for the exhibition; the second features the artist’s personal selection of works that give insights into his innermost universe; and the third brings together a group of 14 projects for interventions in public and private spaces (some of them completed, others not), a kind of ‘natural history’ archive that contains references, sketches of the creative process, making-ofs and a number of pieces that are the final results.

The work

 

Octavio Paz , Mexican Nobel Peace opened multiple doors leading to other worlds, other voices, other languages. He was the bridge for Spanish-speaking readers with other forms of reading reality. His voice, transubstantiated, reaches worlds that  thanks to him, today we touch, feel, embrace. His critical eye is always subject of mental hygiene.

 

[...] But what we see with the eyes of memory is not identical to that which we live: life is irretrievable. Poetry is not life, it is the transfiguration of life. It is not living but say.

El testamento de Maria

march 2015

files/corona_180215_1424258897_74_.jpg

from the homonymus novel by COLM TÓIBÍN directed by AGUSTÍ VILLARONGA

Teatre Lliure Montjuïc
March from 5 to 22, 2015


Agustí Villaronga, Frederic Amat and Blanca Portillo tell the tale of Jesus of Nazareth according to his mother in this pagan gospel.
Actress Blanca Portillo stars with this bold retake on Mary, recast as a simple countrywoman whose only child has been snatched away because of a heavenly decision she doesn’t understand. Irish novelist Colm Tóibín offers up this surprising monologue in which a pagan Mary spends her final days at Ephesus, tormented by the terrible hatred unleashed against Jesus and watched over by her son’s disciples. She knows that some of them are writing lies – and that’s why she wants to tell us what really happened.
Director Agustí Villaronga’s staging reflects the utterly human nature of the mother of God, a woman whose emotions pour out kaleidoscopically as she relives the ghosts of the past while standing at the doorway to death.
The piece is rounded out by artist Frederic Amat’s scenery and music by Australian singer and songwriter Lisa Gerrard, of Dead Can Dance.

Lluís Pasqual returns to Naples with Endgame in a Neapolitan vein.
«I don’t think that there is a less literary and more contemporary theatrical style that that of Samuel Beckett. In a meeting in Paris, I heard him say that the most terrible crime of man is to take himself too seriously. I strongly believe that all Neapolitans – actors and public and normal people in general – manifest this irony and humour gives to their everyday lives, distancing themselves from existence. For this reason, I am very happy to be able to give Endgame this Neapolitan touch. I am certain that the writer-philosopher, with his bird of prey vision of the world, would be very happy for this meeting; as happy as I am!».
