The fourth edition of the Art & Gavarres festival began yesterday, with the artists participating, commenting on the works they have in different locations in Celrà, Girona, Cassà de la Selva, Llagostera and Santa Coloma de Fitor. This year’s edition of the festival, entitled Without going too far, proposes a reflection on the interpretation and gaze of the landscape through art. Its location in corners in the middle of nature, makes the works have an ephemeral life, and that they change and integrate with the landscape over time.

That the close things we have next door can also be beautiful and that it is hard for us to learn to enjoy them without damaging them is the thread of reflection we have proposed to this year’s artists for their artistic actions. “A year of pandemic and the successive confinements experienced – home, municipal, county – have made us rediscover our closest environment,” say the organizers. “It seemed to us that nature was conquering spaces again, although in reality in many cases simply what we had was more time to look at it,” they add. The works of Art & Gavarres will be open to the public from today until time erases them.

The Art & Gavarres Festival is organized by the Gavarres Consortium, in collaboration with the Bòlit, Center for Contemporary Art, and the town councils involved. The curators of the festival are Àngels Artigas and Oriol Granyer.
