Partnership for Ràdio Illa content production

foto 2020 conveni ACAFConsell de Formentera president Alejandra Ferrer and the spokesman of the Audiovisual Cultural Association of Formentera (ACAF), Álvaro Mendoza, made official a joint action agreement for content production at public radio station Ràdio Illa. Under the terms of the deal, ACAF will receive €30,000 to produce content for Formentera’s public radio station. Cultura consellera Susana Labrador was also present at the signing.

The Consell owns the broadcasting license for municipal radio station 107.9FM, a public service catering to people of Formentera and designed to  enrich and invigorate local culture.

Production of content for Ràdio Illa has been administered for some time now by ACAF—a non-profit aimed at disseminating local culture, promoting media and encouraging the dynamic engagement of islanders in the local cultural scene.

In 2019, a joint action agreement valued at €50,000 was clinched between the two entities. The Covid-19 crisis and the invocation of emergency orders at the beginning of 2020 made the signing of a new partnership temporarily impossible, and Ràdio Illa received a €20,000 advance in order to continue operating.

Silvina Taffuri shows crowds at Centre ‘Gabrielet’ Formentera’s rural side

cartell 2020 taffuri... Y también hay mar, Silvina Taffuri’s exhibit illuminating rural aspects of local life, takes up residence tomorrow at Centre Antoni Tur ‘Gabrielet’. Goats, sheep, trees and flowers are all part of Taffuri’s revelatory exploration of a place with so much more to offer than the sea that surrounds it. From the artist’s treks across the island emerge varying glimpses of nature which in turn become the inspiration for outsize tableaux and sculptures.

The display is on view Monday to Sunday, 11.00am to 2.00pm and 5.00pm to 10.00pm, till 27 August.

Ajuntament Vell exhibition space welcomes Marià Castelló’s “Fragments d’Arquitectura”

cartell 2020 fragments arquitectura 2From 7.00pm on Monday 17 August, Marià Castelló’s Fragments d’Arquitectura will begin a two-week run at the Sala d’Exposicions—Ajuntament Vell. Save for a weekly closure on Sundays and Monday mornings, the display will be open for daily visits from 11.00am to 2.00pm and 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

Castelló describes the project as a reflection on local architecture revelatory of a particular relationship between shelter and buildings in general—“considerations which are hard to appreciate without the analytical help afforded by cross-sectioning”, he asserts. “Fragments d’Arquitectura can additionally be seen as a collection of sculptures that repurpose the geometrical proportions of original buildings — even at the risk of abstraction: we’re seeing things that neither photos nor on-site visits can show”.

Eba Marí Guaita’s “En paral·lel al cel” opens at Centre Gabrielet

cartell EN PARALLEL AL CElSacred geometry, starry skies and nocturnal seascapes . . . these are the inhabitants of Eba Marí Guaita’s universe, which the Valencia-born and Formentera-based artist channels in an exhibit due to take up residence tomorrow at Centre Antoni Tur ‘Gabrielet’ and set to stay until Saturday the 15th.

Through paintings in acrylic and resin, the artist reveals an inner world that is both hers alone and communal, and replete with symbolism. After a vernissage at 7.00pm on 6 August, En paral·lel al cel will be open to the public Monday to Saturday from 9.00am to 1.30pm and 4.30pm to 6.00pm.
