Joan Miró Foundation Presents Carolina Saquel
Carolina Saquel.

BARCELONA, SPAIN.- The Joan Miró Foundation is presenting an exhibition by the Chilean artist Carolina Saquel, who lives in France, as part of the “Pigments and Pixels” cycle. Curated by Marie-Thérèse Champesme and Pascale Pronnier, the cycle shows a selection of works by artists from Le Fresnoy and questions the various links between today’s artists and the different media, themes and styles that have been present throughout the history of art.

Carolina Saquel (Concepción, Chile, 1970) is presenting a set of videos specially produced for the “Pigments and Pixels” cycle that are the result of her interest in certain aspects of Joan Miró’s work.

She has studied his art in depth in order to immerse herself in his universe and extract from it two specific characteristics that inspired his work: the conception of the pictorial space, specifically the relationship between surface and depth; and Miró’s links with the language of poetry. This relationship often gives a spatial dimension to his titles.

In Disaster is yellow (2007), Saquel’s three videos explore this notion of depth on the basis of the confusion between natural elements situated on different planes: a green wall covered in ivy, green on green, both surface and volume, that creates movement in a wall that in principle is static.

The artist’s aim is to attract the viewer into a particular universe through the images and sound, towards a melancholy experience of a magical, poetic nature in which they gradually discover the strange, disturbing effect of something that in appearance is small and banal.
