Juan Muñoz. The Nature of Visual Illusion

Spanish artist Juan Munoz is well known for his installations and sculptures that often include architectural elements, human figures, and the like in which he takes into account the spatial elements of the exhibition space. This catalogue documents an exhibition of three separate but related installations at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. Here, fabricated and painted human figures are scattered around the gallery in a variety of positions. In “Neal’s Last Words” a figure is propped with his forehead against a mirror, perpetually staring at himself; in “Half-Circle,” a group of laughing figures are arranged in an arc, and in “Many Times,” there are 100 figures, all the same, arranged on a balcony in a variety of groupings. A traveling retrospective of Juan Munoz’s work will open in the United States late in 2001.
