The butcher’s we built Koloreka over has faded away over the years, but when you come in you can still sense its spirit in a very special place: the refrigerator.
At only 5m2 it is our everyday workshop and storage area, but we have decided to give it another opportunity, and plan to turn it into the smallest exhibition room in the city.
We are looking for other artists in Donostia who would like to exhibit and sell their work here. We want our fridge to be like Walt Disney’s one, showcasing taste, talent and the desire to share things.
Laura Miner de Piedra y Cemento
Of stone and cement. February 2023
Laura Miner (Donostia, 1966) Her extensive artistic career has led her to fish in all kinds of fishing grounds, hence she pulls any art in a spontaneous and original way. His lair is in Undermount (Igeldo), a place without cartography, in the image and likeness of it and all that is eclectic.
His proposal includes a set of variations made from photographs taken of the stones and cement that make up the architecture of the place that will host the exhibition.
Scraps. November 2022
Maite Rosende (Donostia 1991) studied illustration and mural painting in Barcelona. She has participated in the street art festivals Asalto (Zaragoza) and Altza Apain (Donostia) and has worked in the field of children's and young adult literature with the publishing houses Mamut (Barcelona) and Denonartean (Pamplona). Her work has been recognized by Iberoamérica Ilustra (Mexico) and by the San Sebastian Film Festival. She currently lives and works in Donostia.
Her proposal is based on the work done during the year 2021 in seven notebooks in an attitude of play and enjoyment. The exhibition includes original collages of different sizes made from them.
Keep Looking. February, 2022
Donostia illustrator Ane Zaldibar held an exhibition of the work she does in addition to being a member of the Koloreka team.
Ane studied art at Bilbao and Seville. After graduating she moved to Barcelona where, in 2010, she took a degree in illustration, and began to take an interest in independent publishing. Since then she has edited around 20 publications, taken part in numerous specialist festivals, and contributed drawings to many different media outlets. Currently she lives and works in Donostia.
Her work includes medium-size drawings, collages made using material discarded during everyday work at Koloreka, and several fanzines and comic books.
We would like to invite any artist with connections to Donostia and who can show their work in 5m2.
We are going to hold two exhibitions each year, in February and November. If you would like to show your work, please send an e-mail with information about it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can get in touch at any time, but the final date for the next two exhibitions is July 15th.
