In Three Acts is a three-part exhibition curated in collaboration with Valentín Roma and a combination of public programmes that aims to display what the lines of reasoning behind the Josep Suñol Collection are, and under which artistic and historical horizons the collection was created.
Abans que un munt de peces immòbils, entenem que una col·lecció també és —o és sobretot— una mena de registre d’intensitats, una manera d’acostar-se a l’art amb els arguments de cada moment concret però alhora amb les preguntes que anticipen punts de vista encara latents.
Act 3. Twenty Faces and Three Crowds
The third and final act, Twenty Faces and Three Crowds, goes into the great iconographic motive of art, the element that questions the chronologies and brings to this day the verisimilitude of the whole past: the human face.
The face is memory and is also a literature of what has been lived. In it the experience is written and the future is intuited. A face that looks with restlessness demands that we decode it. A face that conceals its appearance seems to manage its certainties.
The Josep Suñol Collection has petrified faces and dilated faces, recognizable faces and fading faces. The twenty faces selected have their counterpoint in three crowds that observe and accept them. Along with the loneliness of the face looking for causes to be, we find the crowd rehearsing reasons to be recognized.
