On 5 April, Tabakalera opens the new exhibition by the Basque artist Esther Ferrer. The show entitled Esther Ferrer. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23…, in reference to the artist’s work based on the prime numbers, has been curated by Laurence Rassel and Mar Villaespesa.

The show treats the exhibition area as a place for exercises, actions and thought, through which run processes, essays, sketches and models, while at the same time offering an invitation to count, to hear and to feel the materiality of sound, to experiment and to experience the body in motion following different combinatorial possibilities.

It is an exhibition that contemplates the body, live on stage, as well as having a more abstract side involving pieces that make reference to mathematics, numbers, and language. The visitor's participation is essential to the activation of the artist's pieces. On this occasion, we are interested in questioning the exhibition space and establishing another type of relationship between the work and the visitor; that is to say, the public is invited to take an active role and interact with the artist's work.

In addition, the exhibition will be accompanied by a weekly programme of actions by artists invited by Ferrer herself: Boris Nieslony, Anne-Marie Cornu, Roi Vara, O.R.G.I.A., Paula Valero, Maialen Lujanbio and Isidoro Valcárcel-Medina. Esther Ferrer herself will bring this programme of actions to a close on May 25.

With this exhibition, Tabakalera also opens a new exhibition hall on the first floor of the building, which will provide a more central location and better accessibility to the exhibitions.
