 Figurative Sculptures by Jaume Plensa

“Many of my works reflect the dualism between body and soul, subjects which feature widely in my work.

For instance, within my light works is a somehow moving light.This could be the soul which we can never find within the body.”

In the darkest time of the year, the internationally acclaimed and awarded artist, who started his career in the 1980s, creates an exhibition in EMMA around the theme of light. The forty individual sculptures as a  part of installations created in 2004–2012 will fill most of the room for changing exhibition.
Shaped like human figures, torsos and heads will engage in discussions and dialogues in the spacious room opening up to the surrounding landscape. Plensa’s sculptures shape the immaterial. Through the human figure, the artist explores universal themes of life: love, despair, memory and language. In addition to light, other important elements in Plensa’s works are letters and words. He sees a letter as a cell, with its own “cellular memory”. He gets many of his influences from poetry (William Blake, Elias Canetti), music and various soundscapes.
Created in steel, synthetic resin, glass fibre, iron, bronze, alabaster, paper and light, the works offer a cross-section of Plensa’s career as sculptor. He has also created numerous works on paper as well as etchings. His other works include sets and costumes for opera and theatre productions.
