(Ongoing project)


"HYBRIS: A POSSIBLE APPROACH TO ECOAESTHETICS", León (17/06/17-07/01/18). Collective exhibition at MUSAC - Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León. Spain.

Curatorship: Blanca de la Torre.

"Hybris, wishes to encourage a rethinking on the potential of art as a tool for action as well as for subjectication in relation to the environmental concerns of today.(...) The primary focus of Hybris is to adopt a different approach to art’s relationship with ecology and sustainability, two highly questionable concepts due to the increasingly more prevalent greenwashing techniques used by many corporations and businesses. Having said that, the exhibition engages with the approaches of Felix Guattari, for whom ecology questions the overall subjectivity and formations of capitalist power. In the foundation of his ecosophical theory, with The Three Ecologies, the French philosopher introduced the inextricable interconnection and articulation of three areas: the environment, the social, and human subjectivity". (Blanca de la Torre)

"FUNDAR UN BOSQUE (Fund a forest). First exhibited at Fernando Pradilla Art Gallery", Madrid (15/9/16 - 15/10/2016).

“Fund a forest” brings together the set of works and specific interventions around the concept of landscape pollution as a moral boundary and the social activism of artistic production. For the artist, planting a tree today is a radically revolutionary action that is not naif or romantic; on the contrary, it is an immersion into a context that is not only ecological, but also judicial and political. Santiago Morilla built several installations or self-sufficient portable greenhouses that are watered and illuminated with pedal-powered machines". (Press release)
