Statement of PLANTA


Since its beginning, PLANTA has woven an extensive network of collaboration with artists and institutions, supporting artistic creation in all of its manifestations.


Art at the service of science

Fundació Sorigué, through PLANTA project, has supported for years the research carried out by Armin Linke on the forces that impact the Earth’s surface. The results of this research could be seen in the exhibition co-produced by PLANTA and Matadero Madrid in Nave 0.

New artistic productions for Sónar Festival

SonarPLANTA was a joint initiative between PLANTA and Sónar, International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art, to encourage new artistic productions emerging in the cultural space between new technologies and contemporary creation. SonarPLANTA promoted research and experimentation in creative languages around technology and supported the work of the current generation of digital artists.

Between 2014 and 2017, SonarPLANTA invited international artists to take part every year through a call to present New Media Art proposals inspired by the PLANTA project. The project selected for each edition was exclusively produced and made its debut in the SonarPLANTA space at the Sónar event held for the Day of Barcelona.


Meeting point for new talents in international cinema

Fundació Sorigué presented in April 2014, ‘MOVIEMENT. Fundació Sorigué’, an International Film School Meeting that brings together students and prestigious professionals from the world of cinema and audio-visuals.

The Sant Jordi de Mollé farmhouse, a historic location surrounded by nature in the region of La Noguera (Lleida), where the Sorigué group has a part of its agricultural activity was the location selected for the participants to stay. La Plana del Corb, located in Balaguer (Lleida), is home to the business group’s industrial installations and was the background for the participants’ creations.
