1. February 1997 – 19. May 1997
Featuring artworks by:
Muñoz‘ figurative drawings and sketches are often caricature-like. The installations have an enigmatic, occasionally witty effect; “Waiting for Jerry” is a mouse-hole from which issues the signature tune of the “Tom and Jerry' cartoons. The “Raincoat-Drawings” show interiors, furnished but deserted as if, like the balconies, anticipating an entry. Or have the occupants just left?
Without words - Muñoz' pieces are often strikingly mute - concrete situations are created. The extensive exhibition, occupying some 800 square meters, culminates in a new work, “Plaza”. In it, thirty-three almost life-size, strangely smiling Chinese figures people the Museum's top light exhibition space.
