Opening: July 31st 2009, at 9 p.m. Espacio Niram, Madrid
The Romanian great poet, Mihai Eminescu (1850-1889), finished his days in a hospital. He had psychological problems, perhaps a depression, and doctors injected him mercury. In that romantic and extreme atmosphere, the phantoms of other previous or future writers: Cervantes, Joyce, Borges, Calderón, Holderlin or the mystic nun Teresa de Jesús enter in their nightmares to built or destroy his life, a life which belonged to Art and Literature.
“Mihai Eminescu’s Seven Sins” is a poetic and plastic novel which inspires Isabel del Rio several paintings that everybody can see these days (August/2009) in Madrid, Espacio Niram (C/Independencia, 2).
