About the event
Within this photography creative stay in beautiful area of Tramuntana mountain range we continue to visually explore various layers of history, present and possible future of the villa Son Mossenya and related life stories of local majorcan families.
Our approach is via photography media communicate in a contemporary way the common history between Bohemia and Mallorca, which was rooted in this area around Valldemossa. The work of each participant can become not only unique artistic expression of one's perception of these topics, but also can be enrichment of the development of art life around this villa.
This project has an aim to point at the villa Son Mossenya and bring life to its environment. Does it has a chance for a future as a living place hosting various art fields, research and residencies, perhaps as The Tribute to Pilar Montaner? How we can contribute? During our creative stay we will focus on development of our ability to pass to audience our messages not only through the way how we photograph, but also how we work with the photography as an object in offered space.
The space of Villa Son Mossenya and its surrounding offeres many possibilities to include also other art forms into once expression, as sculptur, instalations, site-specific forms using local materials. The result of our photography research would be a final exhibition in chosen form, builded up in exteriors of the villa, and an art catalogue to spread the outcomes.
Gathering will be accompanied for those interested by 3-hours training in sculpturing with Catalina Sureda, based in her atelier in Valldemossa, and by various out-door happenings according to the whole group plans. We also visit chosen local artists' studios.
The contribution for participation in these projects is 400 euro, free accomodation arranged for one week.
The event goal is the support of development of Son Mossenya art center idea and everybody is becoming part of the process by participation on these art gatherings.

Memories of Son Mossenya:
Elvira, what is your strongest memories of the Son Mossenya history?
This is the house around 1960, is our donkey “Caravaco” with two boys from Valldemosa, wearing the mallorcan outfit.
I remember playing around the gardens, also our uncle had bees and we helped him to take the honey out.
I remember the big table having lunch or dinner with strong formality, the had a servant at the table and a very good chef.
Catalina, cual es tu memoria mas fuerte conectada con Son Mossenya?
Me acuerdo de pequeña que había en el desván una cocina económica de juguete, que me gustaba mucho.....
Era como las de verdad pero más pequeña. En la gran despensa tenían ricos jamones y nosotras íbamos y cogíamos
De más mayor, recuerdo que me gustaba mucho el comedor con sus grandes ventanales que salían al parral,
y en la pared dentro colgados platos de cerámica preciosos. ...... Y el olor a Eucaliptus divino...
Y lo que hacíamos también siendo pequeñas, coger unas hojas de Eucaliptus y meterlas en bolsitas de papel transparente, sacábamos una mesita y los vendiamos a los turistas.
