The exhibition operates as a meeting point for the participants of the arteventura residency, symbolically connecting the port city of Antwerp with the southern region of Spain. Like the wanderers of the past, who in pursuit of their own interests joined caravans to travel together to foreign places, each of the artists has chosen arteventura as a temporal stop on their way.
Located in the heart of the nature reserve Sierra de Aracena, arteventura is an oasis surrounded by green hills and numerous springs. “La alegria Andaluza” (joy) describes the spirit of the region. Whether having spent time contemplating the picturesque landscapes or actively exploring it, each of the participants brought a part of the adventure into their practice. The exhibition in the city of Antwerp, historically a place of interchange, is conceived as a next stop of the imaginary caravan.
Perceiving the regions of Flanders and Andalusia, as well as every participant of the residency, as opposite yet connected ‘planets’, the exhibition offers a space for artistic dialogues and elective affinities. Planet Caravan is a poetic reflection on the ideas of travelling, adventure, coexistence, and connection.
