Action / installation around the olive tree in the patio of the Miró Foundation, consisting of an aperitif made up of a cocktail concocted from a distillation of 47.5o Arbequino olive oil and served in test tubes. The “Miró 47.5o” was offered on an oval olive-shaped table, illuminated by oil lamps. The aperitif culminated in a tasting of homemade breads drenched in extra virgin Arbequino olive oil.
The action was a celebration of the sensory, nutritive and curative properties of olive oil, that suggests to us a reflection on HIV. According to a scientific study carried out at the University of Granada, a component of the skin of the olive slows down the propagation of the AIDS virus within the organism up to 80%.
OLIENULLUM formed the closing ritual of the “You are not alone” exhibition organized by the ARTAIDS Foundation in collaboration with the Joan Miró Foundation.
