The soul examined

Time Out says

And now for a bit of strange in the form of the multidisciplinary monument that Samuel Labadie has created in Espai 13 of the Fundació Joan Miró. What's strange about it is that as soon as you enter the exhibition you come across a cautious French girl reciting lurid lines from Baudelair's 'A Carcass', accompanied by a man built like a barn who is listing  parts of the human body as if they were multiplication tables. Labadie says he was inspired by Daniel Paul Schreber's 'Memoirs of My Nervous Illness', but you'll leave with the suspicion of a madness that might live a bit closer to home.
