ARTIST INSTALLATIONS EMBEDDED INTO MADRID’S URBAN LANDSCAPE Katie Paterson: "Earth-Moon-Earth"
18.02.2011 from 19:00 to 21:00 hrs
Presented in: Presidential Suite, Hotel Grán Melià Fénix, Madrid Sound installation by Katie Paterson (UK, 1981)
Presented to the public in one of Madrid’s most unique
rooftop locations, with panoramic views across the city, coinciding with the full moon. For this work,
Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata has been translated into Morse code and sent to the moon via E.M.E.
Returning to earth ‘fragmented’ by the moon’s surface, it has been re-translated into a new score, the
gaps and absences becoming intervals and rests. In the exhibition space the new "moon–altered' score
plays on a Disklavier grand piano.
ARTIST INSTALLATIONS EMBEDDED INTO MADRID’S URBAN LANDSCAPE Regina José Galindo: "ALARMA"
17.02.2011 - 20.02.2011 Presented in: Banco de España Station, Madrid
This Site – specific video installation by Regina José Galindo, was commissioned by La Caja Blanca
gallery for the tunnels adjacent to the vaults which protect Spain’s national gold reserves. Whilst on the
streets of Madrid, the growing sense of social unease becomes palpable, a crisis is strangling the
economy, breaking down the borders that once preserved the privileged life of a carefree European city.
With breathtaking speed and the unmistakable sound of a siren, the streets of Madrid merge with those
of Guatemala City.

Noa Lidor In the chambers of the sea 16.09.2010 Nit de l'Art 2010
Noa Lidor (Israel, 1977) has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and produced site-specific projects for the Friends Room at Tate Modern (London, UK), Abbot Hall Gallery (Cumbria, UK), La Caja Blanca gallery (Palma de Mallorca, Spain), and the Haifa Museum of Art (Haifa, Israel).
She works with sculpture, drawing and installation and often draws on humble materials such as paper, salt or plaster, as well as objects usually found in domestic environments such as furnishings, feminine home accessories such as doilies and candelabras, and musical instruments, which once appropriated by the artist, loose the function they were originally designed to perform.
Federico Acal Lighthouse, a silent landscape 02.08.2010 - 10.09.2010
Curated by: Paula Llull Llobera
Presented in: La Caja Blanca, Palma de Mallorca
Through his 3 channel video projection, Acal's work invites the viewer to inmerse themselves into the intimate, symbiotic relationship between the Mediterranean sea and the lighthouses of Mallorca.
At first glance, the evocative images of the 10 lighthouses that mark the coast of Mallorca in the video "Lighthouses, a
silent landscape", might appear to be still images of the island's beauty spots but soon it becomes apparent that they provide an intentional emphasis on the landscape.
Federico Acal Lighthouses, a silent landscape 30.07.2010
Presentado en: La Caja Blanca, Palma de Mallorca
Comisariado por: Paula Llull Llobera
La video-instalación se presenta durante una sola noche en el torreón del Castillo San Carlos.
Acal invita a sumergirse en la íntima relación simbiótica entre el mar Mediterráneo y los faros.
El Castillo de
San Carlos, una impresionante fortificación situada en una arboleda que se eleva sobre las orillas de la bahía de
Palma, es sin duda uno de los espacios más emblemáticos de la ciudad.
