Taller Col-Art en el TEA, Dez. 15
Soon later – in january 2016- 49 professional artists created with us the largest three murals ever realized in the long history of Col-Art, this in the theatre of the „Circulo de Bellas Artes de Tenerife“, midst in the center of the capital St. Cruz. A first presentation of the murals found a remarkable success, not only by the public, but also in the local press and in the news of the canarian and the spanish television. The official opening of the renovated theatre with its impressioning murals will take place in april 2016.

Un mural de 103 metros como carta de amor a Santa Cruz


Un total de 42 artistas de diferentes estilos participan en el mayor mural del movimiento Col-Art que se ha realizado hasta la fecha

42 artistas de diferentes estilos participan en el mayor mural del movimiento Col-Art que se ha realizado hasta la fecha, y que con 103 metros de extensión recrea su visión de la capital tinerfeña a partir de una foto aérea para elaborar una carta de amor a Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

La presidenta del Círculo de Bellas Artes de Tenerife, Dulce Xerach Pérez, utilizó esta expresión para definir el mural que se está realizando estos días y que será inaugurado en abril dentro del homenaje previsto a la primera directiva de esta institución cultural con motivo de su 90 aniversario.

Desde un Auditorio multicolor con una exhuberante bailarina carnavalera hasta el chicharro que simboliza la ciudad rodeado de medusas, barcos infantiles que navegan, sirenas mitológicas, las gaviotas que sobrevuelan la playa y el arbolado del parque García Sanabria hasta la cruz (pintada en rojo) de la plaza de España, cada rincón de la capital aparece reflejado en diferentes tendencias artísticas.

En la confección del mural, plasmado sobre las paredes del teatro del Círculo de Bellas Artes, participan desde estudiantes de Bellas Artes y Arquitectura hasta creadores consagrados como Fernando Álamo, Premio Canarias de Bellas Artes en 2014.

Además hay fragmentos del mural realizados por Hugo Pitti, Juan Pedro Ayala, Lola del Castillo, Domingo Vega e Idaira del Castillo, entre otros.

También participan en esta recreación artística de la capital tinerfeña los fundadores del movimiento Col-Art, el suizo Marc Kuhn y la mexicana Rossana Durán, que realizan su trabajo de forma itinerante y actualmente residen en Tenerife.

Precisamente Marc Kuhn consideró en la presentación de la obra que México es célebre por sus grandes murales pero la particularidad del que se elabora en el Círculo de Bellas Artes de la capital tinerfeña es su mezcla de estilos, desde el realista al surrealismo, la figuración o lo “naif”, mientras que Rossana Durán apostilló que concibe la obra “como una apertura de corazón entre México y Canarias”.

El Col-Art es un movimiento artístico nacido en Suiza en 1968 y promueve la colaboración artística, la realización de un trabajo conjunto en el que varios creadores comparten el soporte pero cada uno realiza su propia obra.

En este caso, una foto aérea de Santa Cruz ha servido de base para dividir las paredes del teatro del Círculo de Bellas Artes en cuadrados en blanco sobre los que “reinterpretar una ciudad soñada”.

Para Dulce Xerach Pérez, esta iniciativa representa además una muestra de que es posible “hacer grandes cosas con poco dinero” y expresó su deseo de que el mural se convierta en “una nueva atracción cultural y turística” para la ciudad.

Aunque la inauguración oficial está prevista para abril, los espectadores podrán contemplar la evolución creativa del mural a partir de hoy, cuando se podrá visitar el recinto, y la próxima semana las paredes estarán ya totalmente cubiertas con esta creación colectiva de 15 metros de largo por 3 de alto, más una franja de 13 por 0,50 metros.

COL-ART
Coordinated Collective Art

10 reasons, why COL-ART is one of the most promising Art-movementds of the 21st century:

1) Col-Art ist the art-movement, who mostly corresponds to ideals of a real democracy.

2) Col-Art-paintings with their strong complexity radiate in a way, a painter alone could possibly never realize.

3) In no other art-direction so different artistic personalities are coming together as in a work of Col-Art.

4) In its meeting of all kind of stiles Col-Art reflects a reality, corresponding to the gathering of many cultures within i.g. the United Nations, the European Union or a country like Switzland, with its so diverse cantons and regions.

5) Although Col-Art was already born in 1968 in Zurich, Biel-Bienne and Berne and will celebrate its fifty anniversary in 2018, it is an art-direction, who corresponds to the 21st century with its worldwide communication, as i.g. with Facebook, Youtube, Twitter or Skype…

6) The essence worldwide of art of all times is the strong liveliness important works emit. They are –so to speak- timeless. And: a typical characteristic of many Col-Art-works is their strong liveliness!

7) To cooperate in the realization of Col-Art-works is not only enriching the life of each participant, it also inspires him for his own individual creative realizations.

8) The informal network, which grows in the international cooperation of Col-Art, gives us the strong feeling, that the potential of that movement is worldwide. Till 2015 around 400 professionals and 4000 amateurs of more that 40 countries have contributed to hundreds of Col-Art-paintings.

9) It does not afford large ressources to bring the Col-Art-movement to large public manifestions, but it is the first time, that we are looking for important public and private financial support, in order to help this historic art-movement, to recieve the place in the international art-scene, it diserves.

10) It is not by accident, that Col-Art fascinates espacially the young generation of today, and so we are shure, that this art-direction is still in its childhood and will – in the next decades- display an unimagined dynamic !

The TEA has programmed a workshop, ”Arte-Col”, from Friday the 1st to Sunday the 3rd of March, given by artists Marc Kuhn and Rossana Durán. It begins on Friday at 16:00, continues on Saturday with two sessions, each lasting three hours, at 11:00 and 17:00, and finishes on Sunday with another three hours starting at 11:00.

”Arte-Col” is a movement of creative freedom, which aims to make artistic activity a means available for all. The activities of this international movement have been developed in museums, art academies and cultural centres of various kinds, in countries such as Switzerland, Germany, Mexico and Spain, and have been supported by lots of people from the world of culture. This group’s philosophy is precisely that of establishing an aesthetic dialogue between creators from different origins, enabling ideas to escape from the margins of the sole discourse so that they can spread out in different directions.

GIVING HER PERSONAL NOTE TO A COLLECTIVE WORK (march 2013)

In the history of nations there are distinct phases (and some of them are very old), in which the collective action was stronger than the individual, and this was also the case in art. Many of these rersults are today heritage of mankind.
This spiritual attitude, this way of creating and percieving art can also be observed in historical epochs
near of our time. Contemporary art has partly recuperated such proceedings and transformed them in specific ways, so that new forms of art have appeared.
We had the opportunity to contact such a stimulating movement, presented by the mexican painter Rossana Duran and her husbald, theoretician and painter Marc Kuhn from Switzerland, father of this art-direction, called COL-ART.
From the countries they came from, Switzerland and Mexico, and with important stages in Germany and other regions, they brought us to our island Tenerife opportunities, how collective art-works can be realized. Sometimes a canvas travels from one workshop to the other, and each painter realizes in his style a part of the whole work. It can also be, that Rossana and Marc offer publicly a canvas, on which each interested person can transform herself temporarily in an artist, giving her personal note to the sum total.
In both proceedings the result does not leave us indifferent, rather makes us observe attentively the joining together of the creativities. To make it possible, that such an artistic gathering ends in a per- suasive result, it probably needs the coordinating and indicating hand of Marc and Rossana…
