Displacement

I found a few days ago a couple of quite interesting interviews with Juan Muñoz, so I am adding one more display we saw close to the beach in Barcelona.

Part of a conversation between Juan Muñoz and Paul Schimmel on September 18th, 2000:

PS: You create a very twisted beauty. This has a long tradition in Spanish painting -Diego Velazquez's dwarves, Francisco de Goya's hollowed-out eyes. 

JM: I try to make the work engaging for the spectator. And then unconsciously, but more interestingly, I try to make you aware that something is really wrong...

    La filiation avec Goya me saute aux yeux!
