Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma presents “Robert Cahen «Paisatges» Reproductibilitat 2.4”, a retrospective exhibition on the landscape in the work of the French video creator that includes an unpublished installation produced within the project “Missions artístiques a la Serra de Tramuntana” curated by the museum director, Nekane Aramburu, and which can be visited in the Aljub from March 16 to April 15, 2018.
Continuing with the exhibitions corresponding to the “Reproductibilitat” cycle, Es Baluard proposes a new revision delivery focused on an approach to the analysis of the capture of the landscape, from a retrospective of the Cahen artworks linked to this theme and with an installation produced thanks to the project «Missions artístiques a la Serra de Tramuntana». In addition to the exhibition, in parallel the museum is working on a publication also in co-production between both entities with Nekane Aramburu, Eugeni Bonet and Hou Hanru as authors.
The project is co-organized by Es Baluard and the Consorci Serra de Tramuntana, an entity formed by the Govern de les Illes Balears and the Consell Insular de Mallorca, established after the Declaration of the Serra de Tramuntana as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also, the show has the collaboration of AICO Servicios Audiovisuales and La Virreina Centre de la Imatge.
Robert Cahen is one of the pioneers of video art that, since the seventies, has been working on the documentary and experimental image, in the first instance, from concrete music to transferring its resources and innovations to the application of the moving image, of analog video to the digital.
“Missions artístiques a la Serra de Tramuntana” is a program that is articulated from days of theoretical nature-practices in coexistence, taking as spaces different points of the Serra de Tramuntana, to work with contemporary artists with the aim of making pedagogy of the cultural heritage open to professional or professional creators interested in the image and movement, photography, video and the relationship of these with the spatio-temporal transits of nature and landscape.
