Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. From October 20, 2017 to January 14, 2018

Fancesc Torres, a Catalan versatile artist, wants to transform a part of the museum in an entropic box emphasizing its preserving function. Promoting works mostly of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries selected from the museum’s own collection, Torres explores the collision between history and culture reflecting, at the same time, on the museum’s nature. Even though Torres didn’t make any of the pieces himself, he has pick them as a curator and, at the same time, he’ll use them as objets trouvés, meaning as a raw material for the realization of a multimedia installation.
