Two Worlds: an exhibition of new works by Jordi Forniés

El 10 de November de 2010 en Art, Painters, Spain in Dublin, Spanish Painters por | Sin comentarios

Shades of happiness

Jordi Forniés, born in Huesca in 1971 is a Catalan artist based in Dublin (Ireland).

A chemist by training, Jordi knows a thing or two about pigments and paint.  

His experience in this area combined with a very strong interest in the mineral world has lead Jordi to reinvent or re-interpret the complex yet beautiful landscapes within and without, mixing traditional and cutting edge design techniques.

Sculpting external material into the canvas before blending colours as time would in rock formations, the artist invites us on a journey through the inner self, exploring the geology of the mind, the meandering of distant memories, the erosion of emotions, the passing of love. 

Opening on Wednesday November 17 at 7 pm
Smock Alley Theatre.
Girls School.
Essex Street West.
Temple Bar. Dublin 8

Martin Sheen on Spanish and Irish Culture

El 9 de November de 2010 en Spanish-Irish relations por | Sin comentarios

“I’ve always felt the balance between the two (cultures), I’ve never felt more Spanish than I did Irish and I’ve never felt more Irish than I did Spanish,” he told AFP following a news conference in the Galician capital of Santiago de Compostela, where is attending the Spanish premiere of “The Way”.

“I love both countries, and both cultures had a profound effect on me.”

    New Spanish writing, by Miranda France

    New Spanish Books

    New Spanish Books

    One of the great attractions of learning a foreign language – especially one your parents don’t speak – is that feeling of a door opening onto secret territory.

    Suddenly the hours spent poring over grammar books and verb tables yield their reward: here is a new world of landscapes, characters, sights and sounds one need not share with immediate family and friends.

    I have a bad memory for fiction, but the first Spanish novels I read, at about fifteen, have stayed with me better than English novels read at the same time. Thanks to those books, I travelled to Spain long before actually setting foot on Spanish soil.

    Españoles en el mundo: Dublin

    El 20 de October de 2010 en Spain in Dublin, Spanish-Irish relations por | Sin comentarios

    Es la ciudad de U2, de Oscar Wilde, de la cerveza negra y de San Patricio. “Españoles en el mundo” visita la capital de Irlanda.

    Un lugar lleno de estudiantes que buscan mejorar su inglés, y de extranjeros que buscan empleo en un país, hasta hace poco, emigrante.

    Por sus calles nos guían seis compatriotas. Ellos nos invitan a conocer el ambiente juvenil, la fiesta, la música y la gastronomía.

    Levantemos nuestra pinta porque nos vamos a Dublín.


    Transcultural: the cinema of encounter

    El 19 de October de 2010 en Cultural Activities, Spanish Cinema por | Sin comentarios

    film series at IC Dublin

    The contemporary documentary cycle “Transcultural: through the eyes of others” brings together a series of films which tackle the migratory convergence taking place in today’s Spain.

    The four documentaries in this selection have been made by independent production companies, and each one visibly attempts to a give new perspective on the meeting of cultures, highlighting both problems and solutions.

    The common thread in these productions is the need to discuss issues which are right up to the minute, and to shed light on the tensions and assimilations inherent in the collision of cultures.

    The documentaries in this cycle propose answers to the age-old problem of identity, and, in clear terms, set out to lay the foundations for a better future in which we can all integrate through dialogue.


    Felipe Gonzalez “on the run” and Franco’s soap opera

    El 13 de October de 2010 en Books, Spanish-Irish relations por | Sin comentarios

    I recall a day in 1968 which was exceptional only in that two interesting events happened in the space of a few hours which were otherwise repeated separately several times. At 4pm or thereabouts I recall receiving in my small flat, with junior colleagues from the British, French, Italian and German embassies, Felipe González, then a young clandestine trade union organiser. He briefed us on his political views and plans and disappeared into the streets, where he was “on the run”…
