La Conservera Contemporary Art Centre (Ceutí/Murcia) is pleased to announce its fourth series of exhibitions, opening Saturday March 27th.
This latest series of exhibitions, entirely produce by La Conservera, features solo shows by artists Lili Dujourie (Belgium-1941), Carolina Silva (Spain-1975) and Lily van der Stokker (Holland-1954). At the same time, La Conservera and Espacio AVare working together again to host two concurrent exhibitions by Elena del Rivero(Spain-1949).
These four artists share common concerns and interests. Though coming from different generations, they all present works revolving around notions of horizontality, the relationship between experience and nature, the oneiric and the memory. The four exhibitions produced by La Conservera explore the actual exhibition space itself, allowing for a unique, enveloping and mysterious sensorial experience. The work of these artists provides a new and silent perspective on the often less recognised practice of women artists.
La Conservera has published individual catalogues for these exhibitions.
Lily van der Stokker Flower Floor Painting
For her first solo show in Spain Lily van der Stokker has created her first floor-based work, something of a personal challenge. It is a huge painting measuring 40 x 14 metres and crawls up the perimeter wall to a height of 1.5 metre. The motifs consist of a number of gigantic flowers made in light fluorescent tones. Flower Floor Paintingcontinues the invasive quality of her wall paintings on architecture. Seen from the outside, in courtyard 2, this monumental painting seems like an artificial garden cloistered inside an architectural interior. To create it, the artist required 20 days and the assistance of 18 Fine Arts students from the Region of Murcia.
