Event Invitation

“Eléctrico y lejano” (electric and distant) is an olfactory expression of perfume maker Ernesto Ventós that makes up the olorVISUAL collection. The exhibition comprises a selection of 87 artworks from some of the most prominent national and international photographers. It connects photographic language and perception by means of the eyes and the sense of smell.  The selection of photographs has been made by linking the aesthetics and conceptual forms to some olfactory references. Short notes, phrases or aphorisms by the artists can be read relating to the smell that each art works provoked on the artists that made them.

The olorVISUAL collection started in 1978 and was baptised as such by the poet and artist Joan Brossa to teach us smell through art and to see through the sense of smell.
