More than a hundred people of different ages and backgrounds attended last Friday's opening.
The event was attended by several councilors and the Mayor of the City of Mazarrón, Gaspar Miras, who stressed that the exhibition of Lola Navarro is the first that deals as such the theme of the dungeons of the building of Consistorial Houses.
He also thanked the new presence of the art group Portales del Arte in Mazarrón.
Lola Navarro returns to exhibit in her hometown with an exhibition that reflects her commitment to our history and heritage.
The interdisciplinary artist has created the installation called "MAZA-MORRAS", inspired by the first use of the exhibition hall that today houses her.
Through her unusual gaze, the Mazarron artist reminds us that in a time gone by the basement of Casas Consistoriales were the dungeons of the municipality.
Its installation, which alludes to our historical memory, sends a strong message to our society, sometimes apathetic and indolent, remembering what happened and that should not happen again.
In addition, it pays tribute to all those people who were arbitrarily arrested and punished.
Lola Navarro will make a guided tour of this exhibition, with free and free assistance, next Saturday July 13 at 09.30 in the morning.
Also, "The ground we walk on" is the result of the work of the Portales del Arte collective, which consists of: Ángela Fernández Rufete, Adela García Olivares, Isa San, Antonio Egea Segura, Charo Martínez, Beatriz Romera Sánchez, Sol García, Encarna Rufete, Javier Egea Segura, Lourdes Fernández and Lola Navarro.
The exhibition brings together painting, sculpture, photography and installations with the same purpose, making a critique of our society and highlighting the serious environmental problems that our planet suffers triggered by the incessant and uncontrolled human intervention.
The different pieces show a high plastic expressiveness that does not leave the visitor indifferent and invites you to reflect.
The exhibitions "MAZA-MORRAS" and "The ground we walk on" can be visited on mornings from Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm and afternoons from Wednesday to Friday from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
