We thank its director, Christian Alonso, for his invitation to guide us through the current exhibitions.
During our visit, we learned about the exhibition “La terribilitat de la carn”, where the artist Marc Herrero transfers the iconography of Michelangelo’s Last Judgment to the contemporary world, and reinterprets it in relation to the current situation of ecological collapse. Grouped into thematic areas, Herrero’s images reformulate animal religious philosophy, taxidermy practices, productivity dynamics, mutation phenomena, and the human desire to dominate the world.
We also visited “Afectes sònics”, a collective exhibition that explores the role of sound as a relational, creative and transformative tool. Basing their work on transdisciplinary research and technological mediation, the artists combine methods such as field recording, modular synthesis, composition, performance, sonification of environments or sound poetry. Adopting typologies such as immersive installation, sound sculpture or video, the projects invite visitors to listen, interact, experiment, improvise and create.
La Panera is a platform for the production and dissemination of contemporary visual arts that goes beyond exhibition and is positioned at the intersection of research and creation.
