04.26.2018 — The Model Prison Speaks Exhibition. Opening 2017

“The Model Prison Speaks” is a temporary exhibition located inside the Model Prison of Barcelona. It took place just before the building turned into a heritage landmark, during its last days as a penitentiary. This unique initiative was commissioned by the Department of Justice of the Catalan Government, with the Honourable Mr. Carles Mundó as its Head. Aside from the exhibition, we designed the opening ceremony, we wrote the script, and we produced the video installations that played while the members of the Catalan Governement spoke. We want to share with you the most spectacular movie clip that we developed, which gains new meaning under the current political situation.  

04.26.2018 — Antonio López at the Palau de la Música Catalana

The Orfeó Català Foundation – Palau de la Música Catalana offers now for its sixth season exhibitions on fine arts showing the works of artists like Bill Viola, Louise Bourgeois, Perejaume, Antoni Tàpies or Joan Miró. This year, the Foundation has invited Antonio López, and the exhibition features twelve of his works at the Lluís Millet Room. Among them we can find the sculptures Man and Woman, and the painting The Dinner. Our job was to create a neutral space inside the modernist room which allowed a suitable contemplation of the works. On the street, before the building designed by catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, you can find the sculpture Carmen asleep, inspired by the artist’s granddaughter. The exhibition will be open to the public until 24th June, and it’s a unique opportunity to see López’s work in Barcelona. Don’t miss it!

03.12.2018 — Exhibition about Palm Sunday festivity and palm leaf tradition.

We have just finished our last project in Sagrada Familia. It’s an exhibition that concludes the guided tour about the symbols of Easter inside the building designed by Antoni Gaudí, and goes through the popular tradition of the palm leaf on Palm Sunday. It was commissioned in the context of a workshop where people will plait palm leaves in the traditional way. The aim was not to obstruct the room where the activities take place, using the side chapels and a light box to locate the printed canvas. Director and screenwriter Iago Blasi was in charge of the content, which is structured in a welcome and three sections on the history of the palm leaf tradition.

03.02.2018 — Historical Recreation Space of St. Rafael Pavilion at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau

Work at the recreation space of Saint Rafael Pavilion goes on. While the conservation labour awaits, we have rigorously reproduced the tiles on the back wall by making use of scenographic tools, like we have done in the rest of the exhibition, aiming to help visitors understand the building.

This recreation allows us to see the pavilion’s original state when it used to accommodate the patients. Using photographic documents of that period, we have reproduced the beds and the living room. There’s also a row of panels which tell the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau’s history.

The exhibition is already open to visit, but the job is not entirely completed. In the next few months, a new section will be added where all kinds of objects related to the history of medicine will be shown. Once concluded, we will publish all the information about this project on our website.

02.20.2018 — "Gaudí and the Sagrada Família. Interior Experience" exhibition now open to the public in Astorga.

The travelling exhibition “Gaudí and la Sagrada Família. Interior Experience” is now open to visitors in Astorga. After beginning its tour at the Alma Mater Museum in Saragossa, where it received five thousand visitors, it will be located until May 20th at the Palacio Episcopal de Astorga. The building, also designed by Antoni Gaudí, is one of the few works the celebrated architect built outside Catalonia.

The exhibition walks us through the history of the basilica, opening its doors and inviting us to visit this emblematic building of catalan modernism. It is divided in three acts that transport us, in the fashion of a grand opera, to Gaudí’s intricate mind; a combination of art, engineering, and spirituality.

After May 20th the exhibition will resume its tour throughout several Spanish cities.

After a few months of digital disconnection, we are happy to present our new website. We have dedicated this time to reinventing ourselves, to rethinking our trajectory and to revisiting our dusty archives for all the projects we have developed over the past 25 years, in order to present them properly and in great detail. We would like to thank Marnich for designing this site. As always, they responded perfectly to our needs in terms of simplicity, usability, and elegance.
