Muñoz // Double Bind & Around @ HangarBicocca, Milan

MUNOZ01
The first solo exhibition dedicated to artist Juan Muñoz opens at Hangar Bicocca, Milan next April 8. His most famous work Double Bind (2001) created for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and never exhibited to public afterwards, will be rebuilt on site for the occasion.

The exhibition gives you the opportunity to experience Muñoz most significant works, mainly sculptures in papier maché, resin and bronze but also audio pieces and compositions for the radio. 

The art of Juan Muñoz (1953-2001) reintroduces human figure at the center of architectonical and sculptural space. Puppets, acrobats, ventriloquists, dwarfs and ballerinas are but some of the characters that inhabit his works, alongside anonymous orient-looking figures, whose presence recalls ambiguous and contradictive scenarios.

// La prima mostra personale dedicata all’artista Juan Muñoz inaugura all’Hangar Bicocca di Milano il prossimo 8 Aprile. La sua opera più importante Double Bind, ideata per la Turbine Hall della Tate Modern di Londra e mai più esposta al pubblico dopo, sarà riallestita per l’occasione all’interno della galleria.

La mostra darà la possibilità di conoscere i suoi lavori più significativi, soprattutto sculture in papier maché, resina e bronzo ma anche tracce audio e composizioni per la radio.

L’opera di Juan Muñoz (1953-2001) reintroduce la figura umana al centro dello spazio architettonico e scultoreo. Marionette, acrobati, ventriloqui, nani e ballerine sono alcuni dei personaggi che popolano i suoi lavori a fianco di figure anonime la cui presenza rimanda a scenari ambigui e contradditori.
