It happens every day
Time Out says
Artist Jordi Mitjà, together with gallery director Joana Hurtado, gives visitors an updated look at his career in an exhibition which highlights emblematic works that create a dialogue with new work, showing off the artist's habitual processes, such as employing and manipulating techniques, objects and images.
In this 'non-retrospective' shown across three rooms, Mitjà has faced the challenge of the open space of Fabra i Coats. On the ground floor are works closest to the artist's practice, among which a locksmith cutting table stands out, and Mitjà remembers that he learned 'to be a sculptor by seeing what they did at home'. Mitjà makes his debut with mural painting, drawing and making mistakes on the walls of the rooms. And he's once again brought the flying stone that he created for the premiere of the Contemporary Art Centre at the Canòdrom creative research park.
