LA NAVE SALINAS
Ses Salines, Ibiza, Spain
Originally constructed in 1941, La Nave Salinas was conceived to create jobs during the post civil war crisis in Spain. The plan was to build a warehouse to store the salt in Ibiza, however, its doors remained closed until 2015 when Lio Malca discovered the building. Lio Malca transformed La Nave Salinas into a dynamic exhibition space.
The mission for La Nave Salinas is to give back to the community by showcasing museum quality works
from Lio Malca’s personal collection.
I have visited Ibiza very frequently during the last decade and a question that I’ve constantly asked myself was how could I show my gratitude to the island that has given me so much.
After 10 years, I visited La Nave and it was an instant reaction. I realized La Nave was the place to share my biggest passion with the island and try to make the collection accessible to the public.
My vision is in progress: to continue transforming the space with exhibitions that become not only a tribute to the works in display, but also a tribute to the islands of Ibiza, Formentera and its visitors
