OPEN is proud to present Regulated Wild an exhibition by Gerard Ortín Castellví.
Regulated Wild is based on the work carried out by Ortín in parts of the Spanish province of Álava in which conservation measures of various kinds and wildlife management strategies are in place. These wooded areas were once part of the huge forest corridors that crossed Europe from one end to the other and gradually dwindled over the years, leaving only isolated pockets.
The main film Reserve (27min) is shot in the regions of Añana and Zuia (Basque Country, Spain) and explores the consequences of the drastic reduction of the wolf population in these parts of the Iberian Peninsular in recent decades. Through four case studies that revolve around this core idea, Gerard Ortín shows some of the effects arising from the absence of the predator, as well as various human interventions that have been implemented in an attempt to neutralise it.
Please join us for drinks on friday 6th of September at Open, Grandagarður 27, between 19.00 – 21.00.
