If we go on, we'll surely laugh

Photography in the Foyer

Óscar Perales

Si seguim, segur que riurem (If we go on, we’ll surely laugh) is a collection of photographs of Tortell Poltrona, the Catalan clown who founded the NGO Clowns Without Borders. The exhibition shows a more private side of the artist in his day-to-day life away from the stage: the man behind the red nose. It also documents the reencounter of the photographer Oscar Perales with a childhood hero many years later. Perales photographed Tortell Poltrona—Jaume Mateu i Bullich—over the course of a year. This is a small selection of the photographs that resulted.
