The collection olorVISUAL is a contemporary art collection designed according to the personal vision of the essence creator Ernesto Ventós. From the first commissions requested directly to the artists in 1978 until now, the common element of the collection olorVISUAL has been the transformation from smell to colour, light, suggestion, dream, memory and many other connotations that have become the personal discourse of this collection. A set of works gathered under the umbrella of the “subjective nose” of the collector.

What is the smell of an exhibition? presents a selection of audiovisual pieces from the collection olorVISUAL that build discourses around social and political issues, reflect upon fiction, performance and dream, or they are just suggested as exercises of the imaginary. The artists included in this show take the viewer away to different time-space universes, where other kind of relationship with reality is possible.

By means of a production grant announced jointly with LABoral, the collection olorVISUAL incorporates the work nanoEsencia_Grafeno, by Hugo Martínez Tormo. The piece, included in the exhibition, proposes an approach to art and science from the intimate synaesthetic vision of the artist.

Synaesthesia (mix of sensations perceived by different senses) is indeed the conceptual thread of What is the smell of an exhibition?, a show that invites the viewer to discover the works based on “their smell”, to allow them to awake memories and past experiences.

This particular approach claims sensory transcendence and the suggestive potential of the sense of smell and it allows to discover from a new perspective relevant works of contemporary audiovisual creation. In summary, it fosters a new concept of art as a space for evolution and creation from where new sensations can be generated, as well as new images, new textures and, of course, new smells.
