#Espai13, emerging art at Fundació Joan Miró
The cycle of exhibitions “the possibility of an island” hosts different emerging artists’ interventions, which explore some of the symbolic and sociocultural meanings of the islands over time. The exhibition which can currently be visited is ‘La Odisea’ by Bárbara Sánchez Barroso, which looks at travelling at a metaphor of a personal search. The artist revives the myth of Odysseus, with the aim of stripping it of any epic or heroic components, and compares it to a journey which she herself carries out by sea, with the purpose of rebuilding her own origins. In “La Odisea”, Sánchez Barroso explores the intersections between fiction and biography, between literature and life.
