El mural del Mount Chiliad és un misteriós dibuix situat a la paret interior de l’estació del funicular del cim de la muntanya més alta del món virtual del videojoc Grand Theft Auto V. Des de la seva estrena el 2013, el desconegut significat de la pintada -encara que no és rellevant per a la història central del títol- ha provocat que multitud de jugadores desenvolupessin extenses teories de desxifratge que publicades en blogs especialitzats i vídeos de You tube han engrandit el misteri i la curiositat.

La clara coincidència formal descoberta en el moment de superposar la imatge del mural i la del Puig Major (la muntanya més alta de l’illa de Mallorca i on durant els anys setanta es documentaren multitud d’albiraments ovni), obliguen a estendre la investigació de l’àmbit fictici del videojoc al pla real de l’illa.

“La teoria definitiva” és una investigació realitzada a partir d’arxius de diaris locals de l’època, fòrums d’internet, llibres especialitzats de segona mà, informes desclassificats del Ministeri de Defensa, programes de televisió sobre fenòmens paranormals, investigació de camp a l’illa de Mallorca, i un seguit d’accions vivencials relacionades amb diverses referències ufològiques; que pretén desxifrar el mural virtual a través de relats populars ovni ocorreguts a finals dels anys setanta a la part nord-occidental de l’illa de Mallorca.

Albert Gironès (Valls, 1995) és graduat en Belles Arts per la Universitat de Barcelona (2017) i màster en Producció i Comunicació Cultural per la Universitat Ramon Llull (2019). Ha obtingut beques de la Sala d’Art Jove (Barcelona, ​​2020 i 2017), del Bòlit Centre d’Art Contemporani (Girona, 2019), de Unzip Arts Visuals (el Prat de Llobregat, 2018), i de Inund’Art i l’Institut Balear de la Joventut (2018); i el segon premi d’Art Contemporani de la Fundació Reddis (Reus, 2018). Ha realitzat residències artístiques a Rad’art project (San Romano, Itàlia, 2019), a Plattform Kyrkslätt (Lappböle, Finlàndia, 2019), a l’Institut Carles Rahola (Girona, 2018), i a Aquemarropa (Alacant, 2017), entre d’altres. El seu treball s’ha mostrat en exposicions col·lectives al Centre del Carmen Cultura Contemporània (València, 2020), al Casal Solleric (Palma de Mallorca, 2019), al Faces Festival (Karis, Finlàndia. 2019), a la Galeria Santa Fe (Bogotà, Colòmbia. 2019), entre d’altres.

CAST

El mural del Mount Chiliad es un misterioso dibujo situado en la pared interior de la estación del funicular de la cima de la montaña más alta del mundo virtual del videojuego Grand Theft Auto V. Desde su estreno en 2013, el desconocido significado de la pintada -aunque no es relevante para la historia central del título- ha provocado que multitud de jugadoras desarrollaran extensas teorías de descifrado que publicadas en blogs especializados y vídeos de You tube han agrandado el misterio y la curiosidad.

La clara coincidencia formal descubierta en el momento de superponer la imagen del mural y la del Puig Major (la montaña más alta de la isla de Mallorca y donde durante los años setenta se documentaron multitud de avistamientos ovni), obligan a extender la investigación del ámbito ficticio del videojuego al plano real de la isla.

“La teoría definitiva” es una investigación realizada a partir de archivos de periódicos locales de la época, foros de internet, libros especializados de segunda mano, informes desclasificados del Ministerio de Defensa, programas de televisión sobre fenómenos paranormales, investigación de campo en la isla de Mallorca, y una serie de acciones vivenciales relacionadas con diversas referencias ufológicas; que pretende descifrar el mural virtual a través de los relatos populares ovni ocurridos a finales de los años setenta en la parte noroccidental de la isla de Mallorca.

Paradís perdut, Can Felipa, 28/04-19/06

[Paradís perdut|http://canfelipaartsvisuals.wordpress.com/2010/04/14/paradis-perdut-algunes-mirades-al-voltant-del-jardi/|en] -lost paradise- is a collective show, curated by Ignacio Somovilla for the [Can Felipa Center|http://canfelipaartsvisuals.wordpress.com/|en], that presents different ways to approach the idea of garden, with different languages, in different contexts, with different results. The exhibition doesn’t pretend somehow to offer more than a partial, subjective and fragmented vision among the very large artistic creation that stems from the idea of garden. Paradís perdut offers considerations on the current status of the garden, as a stage and above all as a metaphor, as a place for relations, leisure, contemplation, manipulation, revendication, heterotopy. It includes works by 11 artists: Jordee Ayuso, Silvia Burés i Miguel Urrestarazu, Pau Faus, Jerónimo Hagerman, Julie Houle, Lola Lasurt, Cecilia Martín, Sito Mújica, Mickaël Tramoy (__homesession 4th resident__), Rubén Verdú. When: Opening on April 28th at 8pm. Till June 19th

Where: Can Felipa, C/Pallars 277 Barcelona

Mireia Saladrigues in Art Lovers, curated by Oriol Fontdevila, Granollers (16/12- 30/01/2010)

[Art Lovers|http://www.rocaumbert.cat/espaidarts/cat/exposicions_actual.php?idn=10515|ca], curated by Oriol Fontdevila, combines two projects that gather new elements to the debate about those participants to the contemporary art processes whose importance is usually considerated as minor in the definition of the art meanings: museums audience, art students, collectors, amateurs etc. All those participants (shall we say art lovers?) have a very underestimated position in relation to the articulation of the artistic field. Both projects give a central position to those actors: collectors and amateurs for Mireia Saladrigues’ project “Inventari d’art” and art students for Anibal Parada’s project “Sala Miró”. Art Lovers pretends by this way to interfere with the legitimization dynamic and, through this institutionnal exhibition space, with the way meanings and values of what is socially considered as artistic are defined. __Inventari d’Art | Mireia C. Saladrigues__

Mireia Saladrigues realizes an art inventory, as if she were creating a local heritage catalogue. In this case however, she registers in Granollers’ private houses, the objects and the works their owners considerate as artistic, with an investigation of their meaning aside from their value for the art market and institutionnal field (”see picture”). __Sala Miró | Aníbal Parada__

Sala Miró is an intervention proposal for a classroom that stands for an exhibition space in the University of Barcelona but that is used above all for students appraisal. The intervention proposal will be debated with Granollers high school art students. ”When”: from 16/12/2009 to 30/01/2010. Opening on 16/12 at 8 pm.

”Where”: Granollers Art Factory / Fabrica d’Art de Granollers – Espai Roca Umbert Roca Umbert,

C. Lluís Companys 1, Granollers

Mireia Saladrigues, Zoolar Eclipse at Sala Muncunill, Terrassa -Spain, 12/11 to 13/12/2009

Zoolar eclipse forms part of the first Capsula “Curated Expeditions”, which took place in the Zoo in Novosibrick, Russia, and was organized around the solar eclipse on August 1st, 2008

The project is an investigation in progress that studies the reactions of the White-Handed Gibbons during the eclipse. The animals, at first just dozing, observed the visitors at the zoo, who screamed excitedly and deliriously during the celestial phenomenon.

Initial results from the preliminary study were shown at Kiasma, Museum of Contemporary Art of Helsinki in march. Further results will be shown in November, 2009 at the Sala Muncunill of Terrassa, Spain. Where: Sala Muncunill, Terrassa, Spain

When: 12/11 to 13/12/2009

Mireia Saladrigues’ publication: “El poder de la convocatoria” (the power of the open call)

[Mireia Saladrigues|www.mireiasaladrigues.com|en] will present her new publication: El poder de la convocatòria (The power of the open call) looks at how an artistic project seeks the involvement of the recipients of the work, together with the reasons why people do, or do not, take part in the dynamics of interaction.

To carry out this research, the letters making up the sentence “AQUESTA HA ESTAT LA CAPACITAT DE CONVOCATÒRIA DEL PROJECTE QUE ESTÀS VEIENT” (YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE POTENTIAL OF THE OPEN CALL OF THIS PROJECT) were cut out of bread – it was important that the material should be commonly available and not long-lasting. Each letter was then sent to a person chosen at random from the phone book, asking the recipient to bring the letter to the EspaiDos at the Sala Muncunill in Terrassa so that the sentence could be reconstructed. A dozen of the sixty-four letters sent out were returned. The main goal of the project was to interview both the twenty-five people who finally came along to the exhibition hall with their letter and also the twenty-seven who did not. The interviews were used to compile the people’s opinions, find out what they do in their free time, and gather other personal information. The publication contains the conversations that we had, along with some conceptual maps which show what the response of the public was like. This publication has been produced with funding from Terrassa City Council’s Department of Visual Arts as part of the Punt de Partida (Starting Point) project and from the 2008 publishing projects awards by the Sala d’Art Jove in the Catalan Government’s Youth Secretariat. The author has been mentored by Txuma Sánchez. Book designed by NODE. When: june 18th at 8 pm

Where: Sala d’Art Jove de la Generalitat de Catalunya

Ramon Guimaraes at Espace Cultural Ample Gallery / Barcelona, from 26-03 to 05-06

The [Espace Cultural Ample Gallery|http://www.espace-ample.com/index.php?section=1|en] presents the individual show of Ramón Guimaraes: Identity Code. [Ramón Guimaraes|/02_artists/artist_RamonGuimaraes.html|en] has developed during last years works focusing on clichés, stereotypes and human relations, always referring to the identity as one of its most important guidelines. Working with medias such as video, photography, drawings and objects, Ramon Guimaraes uses daily life as a raw material for his work, transforming everydaylife actions, sentences or thoughts, touristic or cultural clichés into real performances. This work allows him to achieve a deconstruction of what this ordinary material implies about us, our feelings and our relations with the outer world. Deconstruction which remain obvious in the use he makes of the masks, disguise and role-plays gathering ressources such as comedy, surprise and alarming atmosphere. Converting himself (say, his character) into more or less typical or recognizable stereotypes, he plays with the audience and seat ourselves in front of the things as they are: full of prejudices, fake appearances and deceptive freedom. From all the angles Ramon Guimaraes imagines, the audience will attend an image of the way we remain totally stuck in a social conception that’s incompatible with the individual freedom we’re convinced to have reached.

When: opening 26/03 at 7pm. Exhibition from 26/03 to 05/06
