The Jury's appraisal

A grid of rooms of identical dimensions creates a series of spatial episodes shaping the Perecquian imagery of the exhibition. The determination to add layers and merge the limits between built work, space, narrative and reflection is highly inspiring, and its formalisation (the fusion between display fittings and contents) is simple yet complex.. The rooms delicately and rigorously unfold in the round hall of the Macba and outline a contemplative, fluid space filled with vistas and connections, a place where you can give free rein to your imagination.


Objects are not the only thing that allow us to connect with a specific and precise space. The use we make of them is also capable of giving back a particular, personalised and moving character to a space that would otherwise would appear to be endowed with an imagery of generic or at best neutral characteristics.

This is the premise behind the display stand for this exhibition. A grid of rooms of identical dimensions defines and organises the series of spatial episodes –elements on different scales—that shape the Perecquian imagery of this exhibition mounted in the Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona and which is entitled “Species of Spaces”.

These modular and generic rooms are particularised through the objects and uses placed in them. The museum’s second floor is thus transformed for an instant into a Parisian apartment hung and filled with the different works on display.

The labyrinthine perception originates in the repetition of a strict rationality and modularity. Only a few strategically placed windows address us and remind us that all scales are interconnected, that all objects inhabit the same space and that only when we traverse it as spectators are we capable of experiencing and thinking it at the same time.
