Cooperation between the Kempinski Hotel Bahía and the Plataforma de Arte Huber continues

Cooperation between the Kempinski Hotel Bahía and the Plataforma de Arte Huber continues

The Kempinski Hotel Bahía has become a veritable art museum, featuring a collection of exhibitions of various disciplines, including paintings, artistic installations and drawings.

September, 2014 - From 11 September until the end of this year, you will be able to enjoy these artworks, all of which have one thing in common – the artistic quality of the Kempinski Hotel Bahía. Together with the permanent exhibition of the German artist Stefan Szczesny, who originally made Kempinski Hotel Bahía a hotel dedicated to art, this varied group of eight Spanish artists and one Italian stand out. This local exhibition will strengthen the link between the hotel, Andalucía and the art community as a whole.

September, 2014 - From 11 September until the end of this year, you will be able to enjoy these artworks, all of which have one thing in common – the artistic quality of the Kempinski Hotel Bahía. Together with the permanent exhibition of the German artist Stefan Szczesny, who originally made Kempinski Hotel Bahía a hotel dedicated to art, this varied group of eight Spanish artists and one Italian stand out. This local exhibition will strengthen the link between the hotel, Andalucía and the art community as a whole.

The installation-sculpture presented by the artist Yeyo Argüez greets us as we enter exhibition space. ‘Levedad en construcción’ (lightness under construction) moves around us and gently rises up in the air. ‘Weird Fishes’, which is his work made of paper, becomes both completed and undone before our eyes.

The pictorial master, Tomás Cordero, who exhibits ‘Pinto como otros hablan’, (I paint in a way other’s speak) is one of the highest-level Andalucian abstractionist artists. The exact same work he is showing in the Kempinski Hotel could be seen a few months ago in the Cervantes Institute of Milano.

María Bueno recently contributed to the art gathering of Genalguacil, a small white village set in the hills behind Marbella, which hosts an Art Festival fo one month each year in the most unlikely of places, as unused cemetery, this new phemonomia is gaining international attention as it brings both international and local artists together. In The Kempinski Hotel Bahía, she is presenting two large-format canvases and a series of little drawings from a project showcasing theatre scenography.

Coinciding with their joint exhibition in the Plataforma de Arte Huber area, Pedro Castrorotega and Yolanda Relinque present us with large-scale canvases. Here we find a dream-like state, poesy and surrealism mix simultaneously, bridging imagination and abstraction. Yolanda Relinque exhibits two of her paintings of surrealistic trend, ‘Refugio I’ and ‘Refugio II’, in which she creates new dream-realities.

Pedro Casermeyro shows us more directl approach to the society in which we live, from an ironic, acidic and un-playful point of view. The viewer cannot help but sense that the artist’s reality has come into play. Adela Aguilera addresses volumetric architecture, using noble materials such as Western Red Cedar wood that looks like it has transformed into rusted iron. Iron and found materials, carefully crafted, are part of the work of Maurizio Pregliasco, who concludes this exhibition. It is composed of a series of sculptures the artist refers to as ‘Minotauros’. Mona Guerra presents three bullfighting drawings where linear graphics and gesture play a prominent role. Her work addresses a dialogue between figuration and abstraction.

Again, the Kempinski Hotel lends it support to the arts, this time by displaying hacontemporary, high-level artists.
