In the framework of Barcelona Gallery Weekend an audiovisual piece by the artist Glenda León was exhibited in one of the rooms of Antoni Gaudí’s Casa Vicens, the first relevant work from the architect summarizing the creative world present in all his subsequent production. On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of Barcelona Gallery Weekend, the collaboration with Casa Vicens has been continued through the exhibition Scales, a selection of six pieces by different artists represented by some of the galleries participating at this edition.
From October 10th to November 10th, the works of art that inhabit Casa Vicens and its garden establish a set of timing, functional, formal and poetic correspondences with the building, inviting to reinterpret each corner from contemporary artists’ angle.
In line with Gaudí’s personal style, this exhibition is inspired by both nature and craftmanship. The title refers to the protective function of scales, taking the concept of Casa Vicens as an analogy of a haven, a summery oasis where you can rest under the shelter provided by the red brick structure and mosaics made of tiles. Each of the six pieces exhibited evokes such function in their own terms and enters into a dialogue of materials along with a set of handicrafts incorporated in the décor of the house by Gaudí himself: iron, wood, ceramics, paper, stone and rock are the raw materials in this exhibition.
