On Thursday, May 26, Bombas Gens will host the opening of the 10th Festival Deleste with a performance by artist Laia Estruch.
This is the project “Zócalo”, with which this artist from Barcelona won the Cervezas Alhambra Emerging Art Award 2022, an award that was presented at ARCOmadrid last February. With this action, Laia Estruch approaches the sculptural object as if it were a device for sound production and vocal experimentation.
This event is open to all and free of charge. The performance by Laia Estruch will be followed by music in the garden, where visitors will be able to enjoy an Alhambra beer.
Sound research: voice, body and space
A hollow ceramic tube will occupy the space of the art center, serving as an object for the artist to develop her performance. The sculptural piece has been built by the craftsman Eloi Bonadona, and takes its inspiration from the constructions of the Arab baths of the Alhambra in Granada. The cylindrical and modular structure of the tube is reminiscent of a wind instrument and presents openings that allow the artist to project her voice and body through them.
Laia Estruch is a creator who has been experimenting and investigating the relationships between the voice, the human body, objects and space for more than a decade.
