03-08 September 2017 – IVYnode is welcome to propose the 1st Workshop of the Sculpture in Nurri, Sardinia, with the Professor Mer Jiménez Marrodán and the support of the European Museum of Modern Art (MEAM) of Barcelona.
The course will take place in Nurri, Sardinia. The participants will have the opportunity to learn the techniques of sculpture of human anatomy. The workshop is aimed for both beginners and experts, and is an opportunity to acquire knowledges, but also to know the authenticity of Sardinia.
The course is organized in the tourist complex Istellas which is located on the shores of Lake Flumendosa, in the center of the island of Sardinia, surrounded by vegetation in an area rich in history and traditions. A natural and calm environment that helps to enjoy a very comfortable stay and favors the artistic process.
Mer Jiménez Marrodán, sculptress with a specialization in Stone and Bronze bursts into the national artistic market with a work of a certain claiming character, truly original. A work that gives us back the great taste of the Great Art. Her work demonstrates a character that is reflected in the power of the forms, in the fullness of the features, in the strength of the volumes and in the hierarchization of values in specific parts of the body. Her knowledge of sculptural anatomy is evident in the treatment of forms and in every detail.
She currently teaches sculpture at the MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art) in Barcelona, where she has some of her works in the permanent collection.

We will dedicate 5 days to create a sculpture. We will work in the mornings and during the afternoon it would be possible to visit the surroundings. This time we will focus on the portrait, reinforcing the ability to observe lines and shapes. Mer Jimenez will guide the participants individually in relation to their technical capacity and experience. It is not necessary to have prior knowledge.
Proposed guided tour to Nuraghe Arrubiu, Tombs of Giants, Menhir Goni, Nuragic Village. Visit to other artists in the territory.
