Santa Eulàlia de Gironella, the church transformed into a space for the arts

Santa Eulàlia de Gironella, the church transformed into a space for the arts

Emanuele D'Angelo · 2 weeks ago · Design

The municipality of Gironella, a small city in Catalonia, has activated a program of recovery of buildings, among them is the old church of Santa Eulàlia de Gironella, built mid-fourteenth century.

During its six centuries of history it has undergone countless changes, but in recent years the church was in a state of abandonment, so much so that since 2016 the church has remained unused.
To preserve this immense heritage, the municipality has seen fit to entrust its renovation to Carles Enrich Studio.

In fact, the study started from the old renovations with the intention not to erase them, but to enhance them as a sequence of layers, so as not to forget the history and the past.

The architects of Carles Enrich Studio made three substantial changes to the building, the first was to widen the central nave, giving it more space.

The second is having replaced the underfloor heating system, which was not very effective, with an air renewal system designed to push warm air from the floor through a grille that borders the wood flooring in the central area.

The third substantial modification concerns the external facade that has been completely changed to allow a better entry of light during the day. But also to have a new vision of the church that seems an extension of the urban landscape.

The old church of Santa Eulàlia de Gironella will now become a place that will host cultural activities related to the performing arts, in particular dance, music and poetry.

Martin Neuhof, an evocative photographer and portraitist

Federica Cimorelli · 3 days ago · Photography

Martin Neuhof, born in 1984, is a German photographer and portrait artist based in Leipzig, Germany. Martin followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Friedrich Gahlbeck, a well-known German photographer of the last century, then worked to afford a camera and began experimenting with images.

His photography is clear and elegant, it focuses on the human face and delves into the interiority of the subject he captures. For Martin Neuhof, the face is a gateway to human emotions, an obstacle to be overcome and a barrier to be broken.

His photographic compositions manage to break down all appearances, they are creative shots that highlight the protagonist of the image and meanwhile strike the viewer, provoke him and activate something in his inner self.

The dark and mysterious shots of Marit Beer

The dark and mysterious shots of Marit Beer

Collater.al Contributors · 2 days ago · Photography

The shots of Marit Beer are dark and mysterious, they tell stories of distant and unknown countries where it is cold, there is silence and the air is humid.

To enter her world you only need to look at her photographs: it seems to be in another reality, isolated, far from the confusion of civilization, among small unattended villages surrounded by wild countryside.

Looking at her shots is like reliving them, is like diving in an uncomfortable world of embroidery and lace, among old fabrics crumpled and faded by time. You can perceive her thoughts and anxieties: the passing of time, the weight of existence and the intimacy of secrets.

Her subjects are authentic but always seem to disappear, they are ghosts that never show themselves in their entirety, impenetrable, enigmatic and disturbing spirits.

The photographs of Marit Beer involve us and drag us away from reality, they are ancient paintings faded by time.

Follow her.

The mysterious photography of Joanne Leah

The mysterious photography of Joanne Leah

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 days ago · Photography

The Brooklyn artist Joanne Leah creates beautiful photographiy that bring the observer into a mysterious journey through her intellectual-surreal world.

Her intent is to examine the relationship between human form, objects, materials, and conventions, transforming each of them into something very different and far.

Using different color palettes, yellow, green, red and purple, she uses the human body as if it were a design element.

Her contents are all inspired by her childhood memories and explore issues such as isolation, detachment and identity.

Apparently violent, each image expresses a concept that, through her subconscious, come to life with an object or subject in tune with her visions.
