An interesting article, in Spanish unfortunately, on the 'slow art' movement in Barcelona. The main focus is around an exhibition of photographs of 'faces' found in the trunks of olive trees on the island of Mallorca. These trees are 2,000 years old that the faces are the work of time and the elements only. They are generally only visible as faces from a single angle and even the photographers struggle to find them a second time. The photographs themselves are the product of 10 years patient work by three men, Pere Ferrer, a historian, José Sedano, and a filmmaker called Daniel Ferrer.
The exhibition is hosted by the Fundación Sebta in Barcelona; the foundation's mission seems to be to move the art world away from the Damien Hirst style market-driven disposable 'art' that dominates the contemporary scene. Looks interesting.
