Gerard Ortín opens a new exhibition cycle at Espai 13 in Fundació Miró

The exhibitions share the common thread of the symbolic and sociocultural meanings of the Balearic Islands.

A project the artist Gerard Ortín titled Reserva is set to open the cycle The Possibility of an Island, a series of five exhibitions that will run until September 2018 at Espai 13 in Fundació Joan Miró. Alexandra Laudo is the curator of the cycle and, as he explains, "an island is a symbol of independence and self-sufficiency, but it can also be a place of segregation and confinement. It can evoke images of paradise, but also of self-contained tourist resorts. Historically, islands have been objects of colonial power, but also places for social and political utopias. Perhaps, above all, an island is a metaphor for a state of solitude, retreat and introspection".

The featured artists work on this theme in their exhibitions. In the case of Gerard Ortín, the work explores the meaning of the limits that human beings set in order to limit the harm that their activities do to natural environments. His exhibition Reserva is set to run until 5 November. It will be followed by exhibitions featuring the work of Irene de Andrés, Lucía C. Pino, Bárbara Sánchez Barroso and Gideonsson / Londré.
