Visits to the LUCE and Pilar Beltrán interventions
Artistic interventions at Fuente la Reina and Villanueva de Viver (Castellón). CONFLUÈNCIES
We propose leaving the city to visit two communities of the Alto Mijares region with their extreme natural beauty. Accompanied by artists LUCE and Pilar Beltrán, we will discover the projects they have carried out in Fuente la Reina and Villanueva de Viver, respectively, within the framework of Confluències, a programme which has been developed within l’IVAM al territori.
From September 2021 until April 2022, the smallest towns of the region of Alto Mijares and Alto Palancia have welcomed a selection of artists who, after spending time there and through active listening in these contexts, have created specific interventions in each town.
Torre Emisora is the project that LUCE carried out in Fuente la Reina, where he has worked on the surface of the electricity tower situated at the entrance to the town. Using words forged in iron, he has created a series of explicit and poetic phrases that transform the tower into a structure that broadcasts messages relating to what is happening around it.
Acto de Conciliación is the project by Pilar Beltrán for the town of Villanueva de Viver. From walks, visits to the historic archives and conversations she has listened to, the artist weaves stories that materialise in different pieces, small acts of conciliation between the elements of nature of the town and between the people that live there.
