‘Picture yourself as a block of melting butter’, the new installation at the Espai 13 of the Joan Miró Foundation

The Fundación Joan Miró is holding the new cycle of exhibitions ‘One Foot Out. Expeditions and Diasporas’ in its Espai 13 until September 2017, with the collaboration of the Banco Sabadell Foundation. The programme seeks to reflect on questions of pertinence, continuity and the rupture of the established model in the Barcelona art scene.

Eva Fàbregas takes us into the world of material culture through an immersive, all-enveloping installation that explores the production of feelings and subjectivity in relation to consumer objects. The exhibition room becomes a space of visual experimentation that revolves around the culture of well-being, relaxation and meditation.

Fàbregas uses sculptural objects and performativity to explore the field of market research through the personification techniques of focus groups, in order to show the network of social rituals and relationships.
