Jaume Plensa in Madrid

Sculptures Body


Focusing on the body and the presence of collective memory, the work of the Barcelona-born artist Jaume Plensa will be viewable firsthand through an exhibition and an urban piece in Madrid. The Reina Sofía Museum will until 3 March 2019 present at the Crystal Palace in Retiro Park an installation characterized by the disturbing presence of three gigantic heads made of steel mesh. Meanwhile, the urban work is a 12-meter-tall sculpture that will rise at Plaza de Colón, the Spanish capital’s own Columbus Square, for a whole year beginning this 20 December, on a pedestal that once upon a time held the effigy of he who discovered America but is nowadays so taken for granted.
