Latitudes congratulates Joan Morey, one of the eight beneficiaries of the 27th edition of the Botín Foundation's International Visual Arts Grants. His project ‘LA INFLUYENTE’ will be exhibited at the Botín Centre in 2021.

‘LA INFLUYENTE’ is a project of research and artistic creation around the mechanisms of conversion of the body into symbolic capital, a speculative element and product of veneration, which takes the relics of Saint Teresa of Ávila as its starting point.

Performance by Joan Morey, "POSTMORTEM. Pour en finir avec le jugement de dieu" (2006-2007). Reenactment by Sònia Gómez programmed within the framework of the exhibition "COLLAPSE.

Last year, Latitudes curated Morey's three-venue project ‘COLLAPSE’ presented at the Centre d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona - Fabra i Coats (20 September 2018–13 January 2019), the Centre d'art Tecla Sala in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (15 November 2018–13 January 2019), and a new site-specific performance presented at the former prison La Model (10 January 2019) in Barcelona's Eixample district.

A year earlier, artists Antoni Hervàs and Anna Moreno were also beneficiaries of the Botín Foundation visual arts grant. Both Moreno and Hervàs were awarded Barcelona Producció Visual Arts grants in 2017 and 2016, respectively, and both their projects were tutored by Latitudes.
