Participating in Art Palma Brunch 2012

Mumtaz (Pakistan 1980) is one of the most prominent members of the new generation of contemporary master miniaturists who develop their practice at the crossroads between Western and Eastern traditions in visual arts with a special emphasis on ancient techniques such as Mughal Miniature. For Mumtaz's first exhibition in Spain, La Caja Blanca brings together a selection of miniature paintings developed on newspaper clippings and dollar bills, which the artist created during a Fullbright scholarship in Columbia University, and a series of new pieces previously unseen where the artist uses original Pakistani rupees.

Katie Paterson: "Earth-Moon-Earth"
18.02.2011 from 19:00 to 21:00 hrs
Presented in: Presidential Suite, Hotel Grán Melià Fénix, Madrid

Sound installation by Katie Paterson (UK, 1981)

Presented to the public in one of Madrid’s most unique rooftop locations, with panoramic views across the city, coinciding with the full moon.

For this work, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata has been translated into Morse code and sent to the moon via E.M.E. Returning to earth ‘fragmented’ by the moon’s surface, it has been re-translated into a new score, the gaps and absences becoming intervals and rests. In the exhibition space the new "moon–altered' score plays on a Disklavier grand piano.

Regina José Galindo: "ALARMA"
17.02.2011 - 20.02.2011

Presented in: Banco de España Station, Madrid

This Site – specific video installation by Regina José Galindo, was commissioned by La Caja Blanca gallery for the tunnels adjacent to the vaults which protect Spain’s national gold reserves. Whilst on the streets of Madrid, the growing sense of social unease becomes palpable, a crisis is strangling the economy, breaking down the borders that once preserved the privileged life of a carefree European city.
With breathtaking speed and the unmistakable sound of a siren, the streets of Madrid merge with those of Guatemala City.

Noa Lidor
In the chambers of the sea
16.09.2010 Nit de l'Art 2010

Noa Lidor (Israel, 1977) has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and produced site-specific projects for the Friends Room at Tate Modern (London, UK), Abbot Hall Gallery (Cumbria, UK), La Caja Blanca gallery (Palma de Mallorca, Spain), and the Haifa Museum of Art (Haifa, Israel).
She works with sculpture, drawing and installation and often draws on humble materials such as paper, salt or plaster, as well as objects usually found in domestic environments such as furnishings, feminine home accessories such as doilies and candelabras, and musical instruments, which once appropriated by the artist, loose the function they were originally designed to perform.

Federico Acal
Lighthouse, a silent landscape
02.08.2010 - 10.09.2010
Curated by: Paula Llull Llobera
Presented in: La Caja Blanca, Palma de Mallorca

Through his 3 channel video projection, Acal's work invites the viewer to inmerse themselves into the intimate, symbiotic relationship between the Mediterranean sea and the lighthouses of Mallorca.

At first glance, the evocative images of the 10 lighthouses that mark the coast of Mallorca in the video "Lighthouses, a silent landscape", might appear to be still images of the island's beauty spots but soon it becomes apparent that they provide an intentional emphasis on the landscape.

Federico Acal
Lighthouses, a silent landscape
Presentado en: La Caja Blanca, Palma de Mallorca
Comisariado por: Paula Llull Llobera

La video-instalación se presenta durante una sola noche en el torreón del Castillo San Carlos. Acal invita a sumergirse en la íntima relación simbiótica entre el mar Mediterráneo y los faros. El Castillo de San Carlos, una impresionante fortificación situada en una arboleda que se eleva sobre las orillas de la bahía de Palma, es sin duda uno de los espacios más emblemáticos de la ciudad.
