In the framework of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend, Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Ana Mas Projects present an intervention by artist Laercio Redondo, which explores History and its multiple narratives. The aim is to create a dialogue with space, through sculpture, photography, and a sound piece focused on the question of effacements in time and History, especially in relation to its construction and reconstruction. The intervention can be visited from September 16 to 27.
The intention of the artist is, however, not to retrieve such narratives in the sense of rewriting history or replace one History by another. Instead, he attempts to enact situations that magnify those effacements. For this intervention, he uses displays as the central element which resonates with the work of Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich. Redondo creates a dialogue with the physical and symbolical structure of the Pavilion ultimately blurring the contours between painting, sculpture, design, and architecture.
Redondo’s interest in the Mies vas der Rohe Pavilion is a recurrent topic in his artistic production as shown in works such as The Glass House (2008), Memory from Brasilia (2012), Façade (2014), and Detour (2015) among others.
To Redondo, architectural landmarks in the urban space such as the Pavilion are themselves narratives that bear not only their visible ‘histories’ but also what has not been visualized within its time, their repercussions.
