Miguel Ángel Madrigal

Barcelona Gallery Weekend 2022

15.09.2022 - 15.10.2022

The works of Miguel Ángel Madrigal materialize the sensitive memory of the city and invite us to inhabit these new worlds created by the artist.

The Mexican artist focuses his research on architectural observation and exploration. Thanks to an insightful analysis, Madrigal materializes his gaze, built from a sensorial perception of spaces, in three-dimensional works. Through an elegant sculptural language, the artist explores the multiple possibilities of dialogue between volumes and forms – sources of inspiration for him – to reflect on the relationship between bodies and environments.

In Madrigal’s works, the body does not only occupy a physical space, but is constructed in relation to the environment in which it is inserted. His installations and works reflect on our relationship with the urban environment, a space that is unnoticed in our daily lives, and with which we do not develop a sensitive experience that transcends the passing moment. It is the «non-place» of everyday life.

For this exhibition, the Mexican artist was inspired by the most representative buildings of Barcelona. The project was born from the need to walk through the city and abstract the sensations and emotions generated by walking the streets. In the artist’s own words, «the gaze is filled with intimate spaces that we want to appropriate at every second and with every step».
