About Contemporary Art

This 2022 in the Art Contemporani series, one of the works that participated in the fourth edition of the Andorra L'Andart international biennial has been chosen. This edition was held in 2021 from July 1 to September 15 with the leitmotif: "What would happen if we had to confine ourselves to the mountains?". The Andorran location was in the last editions in Lake Engolasters and its surroundings. Andorra L'Andart 2021 had 49 proposals from 65 artists, with more than 20 nationalities throughout its 77 days of celebration. Each of the artistic installations had its own icon to locate it on the map and a QR code with all the information. Walking to reflect: the biennial is the perfect mix of nature and art, an adventure to delve through various disciplines -eco-sculptures, nature culture, speculative realism, graffiti, ephemeral architecture, photography...- into some of the fundamental issues of society post covid: solidarity, isolation, loneliness, nature, the passage of time, health or illness, urban ecosystems... The work "neighborhood" is expressed with a markedly pedagogical character, the feeling of communion of man with the natural world. Miquel Mercè vindicates the dignity of human nature, a window that illuminates the stay of human beings in the world. The emotional beating of the confinement of the year 2020 requires opening the windows of consciousness. The past must be compromised in order to change the present. This is the purpose of collective memory. The ‘Barri’ urban project is a vital architecture that appeals to a thoughtfully built society with a view to establishing close and respectful ties with nature and, even more importantly, the need to recover our nature.
