About

For the 6th time, the Institut Ramon Llull presents a Collateral Event for the Biennale Arte. Pedro Azara curates the exhibition Catalonia in Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols).

The multi-authored exhibition explores the theory of art reception and documents the complex life of public statues in our time. In a world of images, iconoclasm and iconodulia this exhibition questions the fetishism of images as living entities and encourages conversations as a way to foster human happiness, awareness and freedom.

With a performance by Marcel BorrĂ s, video works, photography, an artist's book and an archive, Catalonia in Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols) investigates the issue of art reception with a specific focus on naturalistic and figurative statues.
