"The Mountain is the name that our region used to receive,
and mountain people are its inhabitants"
'Summits of Cantabria' by Luis de Izarra
Ed. Caja Cantabria Foundation, 1997

"This work will deal with Liébana and the Picos de Europa,
but it will not be about all of Liébana, nor will it be only about Liébana"

Prologue of the book 'Liébana and the Picos de Europa'
by La Voz de Liébana, Santander, 1913


This group exhibition presents, through the works of emerging Spanish artists, a speculative exercise that distorts the conceptual and physical limits of the landscape and the environment that surrounds us.

We always think of the mountain as a static geographical feature, a rock formation that remains immovable and with which we have to live, but what are the limits of the mountain? Is it always a fixed entity? Has it always been there? The exhibition "The body of the mountain" approaches these questions in the Picos de Europa area and the Liébana Valley from scientific studies, poetic resources and symbolic translations.



Still from ‘¿Existe la montaña?’ by Natalia Domínguez and Carlos Aparicio

Project selected within the COMISARIADO Program 2022 carried out with the support of the Vice-Presidency of the Government of Cantabria and the collaboration of La Sociedad, the Regional Society of Education, Culture and Sport.
