L'Olivar

L'Olivar is a 5 hectare estate of olive trees in the village of Ventalló, Alt Empordà, which has been turned into an art project. It is strategically located, 4 minutes from Sant Martí d'Empúries, 20 minutes from Girona and 15 minutes from Figueres, with extraordinary views of Canigó and the Albera nature reserve.

 

L'Olivar. Pladevall Collection

L’Olivar. Pladevall Collection is first and foremost a dream in the making. It starts from the idea of living and creating in the countryside (here we need only recall the series Titan, which came into being almost twenty-five years ago and explored the relations between the natural world and the technological world).
The idea is to put together a fine collection which will be open to everyone. One part will be a sculpture garden interrelating creation and nature: the pieces will not only be integrated into nature, nature itself will be part of the final result. The other part of the collection will be an exhibition space showing more recent works.
The works on show, therefore, will range from a selection of pieces from the Spring Museum which were presented at the Fundació Joan Miró (Barcelona) in 1980, to the works made especially for this project, by way of the Pladevall Virtual Project, which was shown at Galeria Maeght (Barcelona) in 2001, and a number of others.

 

 L’Olivar Private Foundation. Pladevall Collection

This is a non-profit private foundation devoted to creating a collection of the sculptor Enric Pladevall’s art work and making it known to the general public through permanent exhibitions. It also aims to promote new artists by organising practical workshops, lectures and other educational activities.
