JOAN MIRÓ FOUNDATION
The Point of Sculpture is an exhibition curated by David Bestué that covers different aspects of sculpture, hosted by the Joan Miro Foundation. Organized in thematic areas spanning from writing, matter, time, to contact, it vindicates its material dimension and explores the transformations it has undergone throughout history.
Using the myth of the Pygmalion as a metaphor –in which Galatea’s sculpture comes to life and comes down from the pedestal– the graphics aim to explain sculpture as a living practice, in a constant search for meaning. By superimposing images of cut-out sculptures on unfinished sequences of other exhibited pieces, the graphic seeks to reflect the creation of new relationships, hierarchies, and meanings that the sculptures establish with each other in the exhibition.
