The exhibition of Ellen Gallagher and Edgar Celijne in the Botin Center (Santander) comes to an end and we close in style creating, together, something that we will always remember. For this, the Botín Center has the company of Rosell Meseguer, artist, scholarship holder of the Botín Foundation, and specialist in photography.
The first installation that welcomes us to the exhibition is an impressive forest of cyanotypes. This is how the technique discovered in 1843 that sought to capture images on paper, cloth, wood or other supports is known, when photography as we know it today did not yet exist. The result is something magical that can be experienced by anyone, which is why we encourage everyone to participate in this activity. Your own blueprints will function as a way into the exhibition and as a farewell to it.
To form part, you just have to come to the Botín Center at the box office on floor 0 from September 5, take one of the papers already prepared by Rosell Meseguer, make the cyanotype at home and come to the Botín Center to place it in the installation on the 10th September between 11:00 a.m. and 14:00 p.m..
Rosell Meseguer She is a visual artist, doctor in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid and teacher.
