Olfactorium Badalona is the title of this exhibition by the artist NASEVO, who defines all his artistic work in relation to what is undoubtedly our least explored sense: smell.
Exploring the concept of seeing / smelling – smelling / seeing, NASEVO’s work is full of artistic references, evoked with a deliciously fresh sense of humour. For this exhibition a special space was created, in which to experience, go deeper into and enjoy the aromas that define the town. ‘Baetulo’ refers to Badalona’s Roman past; ‘Murtra’ to the myrtle that perfumes and gives its name to the monastery of Sant Jeroni de la Murtra; ‘Anís’ to the Anís del Mono anisette factory, the Art Nouveau gem where the town’s hallmark anisette is still manufactured, and ‘Mar’ to the ever-present essence of its maritime tradition. The four aromas together form the unique and distinctive Badalona perfume that NASEVO has created specifically for the occasion.
