Antoni Llena, with the collaboration of Teresa Montaner
Antoni Llena intervenes in the Collection of the Fundació Joan Miró with a large constellation mural of Miró drawings.
Llena’s selection is an array of 150 sketches from the Collection of the Fundació, brought together in an immersive installation that spans Miró’s entire career in a single space. With the support of the Collections team, led by Teresa Montaner, Llena has worked for almost a year in the Fundació Archives, researching the drawings (around 8000) conserved there. Miró: Antoni Llena Constellation presents the aspects of Miró that Llena feels closest to. The artist has guided himself by emotion and complicity, opting for a more intimate, iconoclastic take on Miró.
The display includes various drawings that served as starting points for some of Miró’s best-known works, alongside others of works that were never to materialise. Llena has arranged them in such a way as to accentuate the play of contrasts fusing together the world of Miró. In dialogue with this installation, the Fundació Joan Miró has chosen to show two works by Antoni Llena that point to his affinity with Miró.
The exhibition has been made possible with the collaboration of Fundació Banc Sabadell and the support of Cercle Miró.
