The artist Isabel Muñoz presents an outdoor nighttime projection at the Naves de Gamazo in Santander
An outdoor projection by photographer Isabel Muñoz will be shown on the façade of the Naves de Gamazo on Saturday, 10 September at 10 p.m. It revolves around the "Las Anjanas de Cantabria" project, which continues with her latest line of work, focusing on the problems resulting from climate change and excess plastic in the sea.
The Naves de Gamazo, which in July marked its first year in service having received over 50,000 visitors, is contributing to this new outdoor activity that transcends the enclosed space of the Naves, by bringing contemporary art to the masses in an effort to win over the public through different languages and expressions, thus fulfilling its vocation of public service.
For years, the exhibits of the annual photography awards presented by the ENAIRE Foundation have inaugurated the festival at the Royal Botanical Garden in Madrid, which marks the start of PHotoESPAÑA nationwide. This shared trajectory with the Festival has now been reinforced with the participation of the ENAIRE Foundation in PHotoESPAÑA Santander.
Isabel Muñoz is one of the most renowned figures in Spanish photography, having received, among others, the National Photography Award. She is known for her personal creative language and awareness of the problems facing today's society, which she approaches through a constant search for beauty.
In this audiovisual piece that the artist will present at the Naves de Gamazo, included in the programme of PHotoESPAÑA Santander, she brings back the figure of Anjanas, magical and mythological beings that are deeply rooted in Cantabrian tradition. Legend has it that they are fairies that help human beings when they need it.
In "Las Anjanas de Cantabria", we discover an anjana that has known Cantabria for thousands of years and that looks on with concern as rising water temperatures and levels threaten to wipe out this land she loves so much. The anjana falls in love with a human who is playing in the water. The two of them thus begin a love affair whose result - like the ultimate fate of the oceans - is unknown to us.
