Workshop “Meditating on Corallium rubrum”. Lucy Orta.
19.12.2022 – Isola Catania, Sicily.
In parallel to her artistic practice, Lucy Orta explores methods of public engagement, inviting audiences to connect with her research topics. For ‘The Lost Species (Vol2)’ she has devised the workshop ‘Meditating on Corallium rubrum’, whereby the general public can connect and dialogue in an intimate setting with scientists through the action of hand moulding coral branches, using the technique developed as part of the Marlands project. Shaping the local terracotta is seen as a meditative action, creating a space for reflection and to prompt meaningful discussions on the topic of local species loss. At the end of the workshop the terracotta will be returned back to the earth, mirroring the natural cycle of all living species.
Workshop – 2-3 hours
- Workshop mediated by a local ceramic artist from La Guilda Ceramic School, Palma.
- Sound piece by Ruben Solar.
- With the presence and lecture of Jorge Terrados (Instituto Mediterráneo de Estudios Avanzados (CSIC-UIB).

We are pleased to invite everyone who wishes to participate in the performance “Garden of the Past. Garden of the Future” as part of the MARLANDS Project, by bringing a young plant from their garden or home. The plant can be up to 15cm tall.
Olga Sabko, an artist who participates in the MARLANDS residency, aims to create a collective garden, bringing together plants from different households of the island and letting them grow and coexist in an unusual exhibit context.
Those who are interested can bring their plant in a paper cup on the 21st of December to the Es Baluard Museum, thus completing the installation, during the project’s presentation.
