Catalogue “Años Luz”


From 18 September to 18 November, the architect Eugenia Balcells (Barcelona, 1943) is showcasing an intriguing “journey into the universe’s memory” at Tabacalera Espacio Promoción Arte in Madrid.

This versatile Catalan, who is obsessed with movement, is a pioneer in experimental cinema in Spain. In this, her latest offering, she combines art and science, light and sound. She uses short documentary films, multimedia installations and murals to present her own personal view of the universe. Nevertheless she spent some time learning about the subject, both during the day and at night, at the Astrophysics Research Institute on the Canary Islands.

In 2010, E. Balcells was awarded the Gold medal for merit in the Fine Arts.

The catalogue of the exhibition, a softcover edition containing 120 square pages, has been printed at Artes Gráficas Palermo.
