It will remain open to the public until March 17, 2024
City Promotion Advisor, Miguel Saenz, inaugurated the exhibition “Botanica amoris”, hosted by the House of Sciences until March 17, 2024. The director of the center, Dolores Fernández, and the author of the images, the photographer from Logroño, Pablo San Juan.
The exhibition is an intimate photographic essay, exploring the sensuality and alluring power of flowers, their ephemeral beauty, their harmony and sensitivity.
In these works, Pablo San Juan experiments with the immediate analogue support of “separation”, which has now disappeared. Images of flowers at their peak merge petals and threads with arbitrary and sticky shapes resulting from intervention in the development process. Therefore the result achieved is unique and unrepeatable.
The exhibition thus proposes, in times of climate crisis, an approach to plants and nature through art, uniting voices and efforts in defense of the environment.
In addition to photographs, given the media nature of House of Science, a new area of interest has been incorporated into this exhibition project, by explaining and detailing the different technical processes used from various supports for instant photography. For this reason, the exhibition includes cameras, photographic materials and computer graphics.
“Botanica amoris” will be open to the public from Tuesday to Friday, from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM and from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Business hours on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays will be from 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM and from 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
Author Pablo San Juan will also give two guided tours of the exhibition in the coming days, specifically on December 21 and 27. The first is aimed at people interested in photography, professionals or amateurs. The second is directed to the general public. Both will start at 6:30pm and no advance registration is required to participate; Simply go to Dar Al Uloom on that date and time.
