Incandescent Memories

Home Projects Incandescent Memories

Incandescent memories is an art exhibition made up of 21 paintings by the artist Josep Serra i Tarragón, a doctor by profession and an artist of soul, belonging to the Arte & Fire collection of the Pau Costa Foundation. The documentary 'El Gran Silencio', broadcast by TV3 in 2015, was the trigger that inspired Serra to turn his inquisitive and curious look at fire into art. The objective of this exhibition is, on the one hand, to reflect the invisible work of emergency professionals and their reaction to this work, and on the other hand, to reflect burned landscapes, trying to make the viewer not only see the fires as a disaster but as an opportunity for the landscape.
