A prosthesis is an addition to the human body of an artificial part or device that replaces a missing organ or part of an organ. It is a functional element that proposes an improvement in bodies considered incomplete or imperfect. It is often considered that art does not have a utilitarian dimension. It would therefore be the antithesis of what a prosthesis represents… But what if art was a prosthesis for the soul?* Download or print the document to experiment with Small support for Txema Retana (1993) by Ramon Guillen-Balmes.

* The title of this worksheet is inspired by the interpretation of the users from the Mental Health Area of Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu on Ramon Guillen-Balmes’ work, within the framework of the project Divers Format (2016) in collaboration with Torrents d’Art.
