Centre Cultural el Casino, Manresa 2008-2009
Inspired by the works of the Portuguese poet and adventurer Luís de Camões, Lourdes Fisa’s hunger for discovery led her to start a long artistic journey two years ago, synthesized by the most primary elements of nature – earth, water and air. Lourdes Fisa walks on Luxembourg land, sails to Lisbon – where Camões was born, and flies back to Manresa – her adoptive town – to take off again.
Camões’s means of discovery during his trip was a ship, which allowed him to find out new, inconceivable worlds and finally to create an emotional cartography with his poetry. Likewise, Lourdes Fisa’s workshop has been an ideas lab where she has integrated diverse materials and techniques into a creative dialogue between painting and poetry. She has created networks of relations and intertwined ideas through different artistic languages. A journey full of experimentation.
In Luxemburg and Lisbon, Lourdes Fisa’s works conversed with the various spaces that held them so as to create totally differentiated environments, which resulted from the artist’s thorough work of the architectural features of each site. This is where we can speak about exhibitions-facilities. With this experience, Fisa lands in Manresa, where she wants to discover, investigate, create, go beyond predetermined spaces, and preconceived parameters and formats; where she doesn’t want to confine in a room, but to escape from the limits, as if her composition wanted to expand endlessly to every corner of the building of Casino.
