OPENING

Travelling through the space of a city allows us to understand its nature, its dimension, its character and its culture; and with this we invariably create moments and live stories that we want to keep in our memory.

 

Miguel Angel Madrigal’s work develops three-dimensional projects that enable the construction of utopian cities for a specific space.

This project arises from the need to abstract those sensations and emotions generated when walking the streets of Barcelona, when we find architectural spaces that surround us physically and mentally, the look is filled with intimate spaces that we want to appropriate every second and with every step.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:


MIGUEL ÁNGEL MADRIGAL

Master in plastic arts Madrigal explores diverse ways of manipulating objects and materials. He has challenged gravity – not only the physical but also the visual balance as well as the conventionality of the artistic supports. He works with shapes and objects that we can recognize in our daily life, but when we relate them with others arbitrarily, they resignify and radically change our perception of them.
