Mirrors and butterflies
Cristofol Casanovas

An art project that explores the metamorphosis of stone into allegory and transformation. Static figures that begin to move, altering their meaning.

Works in a process that began in 2016, with a selection being displayed in this exhibition.

We are on the hillside of Montjuic in Barcelona, within a romantic garden called Laribal, which was designed by Le Forestier a century ago. At the main entrance, a satyr’s head watches over the female figures on the inside. They pose among trees, fountains, waterfalls, and stairways.

Roser Garcia, both inspiration and poetess, enters into a dialogue with the sculptures, nature and architecture. Cristóbal Casanovas arranges and depicts scenes. The result: images and poems. Inner and outer reflections of the relationships between photographer, poet and setting.
