amor Toni Ferron organises a season on the theme of love, including a group exhibition, a performance, a concert at El Gravat, a film viewing at the Cineclub , performances at the Institut de Teatre and an afternoon of project presentations. ACVic organises this presentation [filtering love through the perceptions of Félix Pérez-Hita (love in the digital age), Jorge Lara (audio performance), Kiko Amat (love and records, and records of love) and Adiccionesporquesí (prepositions and erotic stories.) This activity is on 07/05/2011 from 17:00 pm. The complete programmme is below.

Love exists in a thousand ways. Ovid, Ars Amatoria.

Since the time of the Greeks the issue of love has raised profound reflections, leading to numerous questions due to the inability to rationalise it. This is probably because it is a feeling mixing the more primary primal emotions with primal actions, or, on the contrary, with absolutely rational and premeditated acts. It is without doubt the most universal feeling. 


So much so that throughout the history of humanity love has been approached by all the artistic disciplines (art, literature, music, poetry, theatre, photography, film ...), as well as technical and scientific disciplines (medicine, ethics, philosophy, sociology ...), in order to comprehend it.

Curiously, however, during the twentieth century its presence is quite uneven: in literature, music, photography and cinema, it remains a persistent theme because of its universality, while in the visual arts, it disappears under the pressure of conceptual and formal standards.

These questions, in addition to the freedom that love has to offer as a subject, and the resulting variety of artistic possibilities, lead us to attempt to explain, through these talks with various cultural figures, how this emotion forms part of their creative process, the place it occupies, the form it takes, etc.

And, of course, these activities will serve to assert love as an integral emotion to the human condition. An emotion undervalued in contemporary visual arts. Toni Ferron
