Ceremony in front of Es Vedra
The new year started with a great
loss in Ibiza
on January 2nd 2015
May her soul
– Sola, has gone. –
Iconic resident of Ibiza, German artist, decorator and
artisan Sola Tidoo, age 53, died at her home in Ibiza after a
long illness. On Sunday morning January 11th, 2015, despite her remains being
cremated in Mallorca, her friends held an impressive farewell ceremony
on the platform in front of
Es Vedra, where together they created a
piece of art in memoriam of their beloved Sola.
Intentions: to create a huge mandala for Sola, together, and so a
pyramid was built out of stones where candles, incense, crystals, fotos,
etc and natural materials such as sand, salt, beans and flowers, all
colorful and degradable, were put in !!
Shamanic rituals were performed in Sola's honour and a mystic cloud
appeared around Es Vedra while friends meditate or reminiscent....
She was a restless spirit and true friend of many, not
only in Ibiza, all over the planet
Sola Tidoo, persuaded by a close friend, came from Formentera
to Ibiza in 1984, where she visited sa Penya, experienced
Ibiza's remarkable bright light and Medieval walls and she fell in love with
the island, forever.
Sola was the pioneer of the artistic movements of Ibiza and the
originator of the legendary trance cliff top raves of Ibiza in the
nineties, after which she worked as a decorator at clubs Amnesia and
Pacha. After those frantic years she devoted herself to creating
impressive sets for International festivals.
She also established the successful brand
PiratAs DE IBIZA, with
their popular market stall on the Hippy market Las Dalias.
|Friends and residents will always remember her characteristic designs
from the rave entry medallions with Phoenician Punic symbols and her
unforgettable posters, large collages (Tanit!), dreamy paintings to
groundbreaking recycling fashion and much, much more.
From 2010 until the last moment she was
connected to the creative scene of Ibiza as president of the
Ibiza, where she will be much missed by art director and personal
friend, Chris von Gagern.
