The Basque artist Asier Mendizabal is participating in the relevant international art festival EVA International, the 36th Ireland’s Biennial of Art. In fact, this year the Etxepare Basque Institute has signed an agreement with the Biennial in order to promote the presence of the Basque artist in this outstanding cultural appointment. The schedule will go on until June 6 in Limerick, named the City of Culture of Ireland this year, and which is full of exhibitions and events.

The Egyptian art critic and curator Bassam El Baroni has been the responsible of the program; under the title “Agitationism”, the curator’s objective is to show “new approaches to the presence of justice in art”. The proposal of Asier Mendizabal is based on his own previous works, which he has contextualized under the idea of the palimpsest. This reorganization of his own references and reflections about the processes and agreements at the moment of the creation of a sculpture become an installation, with texts as new elements.
