The Large-scale artworks by Jaume Plensa

silent music

The setup for the exhibition 'Jaume Plensa. Poetry of Silence' has already begun. The artworks that have been installed are Silent Music IV, a large corten steel sculpture measuring three meters in height which, in Jaume Plensa's words, refers to "the memory of a sound, of a music"; and Day-Night, one of his poets, mounted on a six-meter-high strut, a common lighthouse. Plensa sees it as a tribute to the poet Vicent Andrés Estellés. Both pieces have been placed on the rooftop of La Pedrera with a large crane.

This first part of the setup consists of eight large-format pieces that will dialogue with Gaudí's building. There will be a large head in front of the entrance to the building, Flora, and three sculptures in the Attic: Hortensia, Adagio II, and the evocative sculpture Cesar Vallejo VIII. In the courtyard of Passeig de Gracia, there will be Together, the hand with the gesture of blessing; and in the courtyard of Carrer Provença, there will be Overflow, a previously unseen piece.

All of these large pieces will be part of the exhibition, which will feature an extensive route through the exhibition hall of La Pedrera.
