Exhibtion - Travelogue. Artist: Isabel Herguera.
'Cuadernos de Viaje' (Travelogue) is the title of the exhibition by Isabel Herguera. It displays drawings and collages made during different stays in India, from October 2005 to April 2010. The exhibition represents in a free and intuitive way, travel impressions from the notebook and a mural/collage created directly on the wall with paintings, pieces of the notebook, objects and sounds. The atmosphere created on the notebooks was essential to create a universe where the animat ed short film that accompanies them 'Amar' could be. Conducted in India, 'Amar', has been selected as the best Spanish shortfilm at Animadrid Festival, and it is a summary of her work over the past five years. It presents in a free and intuitive way, the impressions she had during her different stays in India.
Isabel Herguera (Donostia-San Sebastián, 1961) discovered the animation thanks to a friend that showed her how a Bolex camera works. Since then, she imagines stories that take place in various locations around the world about scenarios that always fit in a suitcase. She worked in several animation studios in Los Angeles, EE UU. In 2003 she returned to Donostia since when she runs ANIMAC, the International Animation Film Exhibition of Catalonia, in Lleida. She also teaches animation in the National Institute of Design in India, where she goes every time she can to draw on all notebooks, especially at railway stations and bus stops.
