FOUR of the 12 artists selected for the final of the Pollensa art competition use video as their means of expression.
They are Romain Sein, Estibaliz Sadaba, Ignacio Uriarte and Isabel María.
The works selected were presented by Margalida Canaves, curator of the Pollensa Museum and a member of the jury.
She pointed out that this year no painting had been selected.
The 12 works are videos, photographs, sculptures, a mural and drawings, such as the series Airports by Charo Garaigorta.
The presentation took place in the Cloister of Santo Domingo, where the works are now on show.
Canaves said that 217 works had been submitted from artists from all over Europe and North and South America.
The photographs include Deleted Scenes by Nuria Marques and Desert Real Estate by Robert Harding Pittman, based on the depradation of the desert and capitalism, Canaves said.

Karmelo Bermejo presented a sculpture of the Basque leader Aguirre with a bronze addition, entitled Material Addition to a Sculpture.
Vicente Blanco based his photograph montage on the film Teorema by Passolini.
Ignaacion Uriarte submitted a video installation based on the tools used by civil servants, such as filing cabinets.
Miguel Soler's installation features helmets, cushions and coloured letters, while Lise Harlev reflects on a couple's life together by means of enamel signs.

The competition is an annual event, and forms part of the town's annual fiestas, the highlight of which is the mock battle between Moors and Christians in August.
