Oracles (Sybils time)
From February 23 to April 30 2011
Vallpalou Foundation welcomes between February 23 and April 30 2011 the exhibition of the sculptor Josep Maria Camí (Espluga Calva 1947) Oracles (Sybils time), which comprises twenty medium and large format works, that pays tribute to women of different cultures, religions and ages who have dedicated their lives to the struggle for peace and human rights.
The exhibition takes as a benchmark a sixteenth-century painting attributed to José de Soreda, Samia Sybil, Phrygia and cumene, which is part of the Museum of Religious Art San Gil Atienza and serves the artist to establish a parallel between these oracles of medieval mythology with contemporary characters as relevant as the Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Mother Teresa religious or indigenous activist Rigoberta Menchú American.
Licensed in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona and professor of sculpture at the Massana School since 1978, Josep M. Camí is one of the most international Catalan sculptors, with sculptures installed in Spain, Portugal, Korea, Lebanon, Taiwan and Puerto Rico.
