My work is a man in a room who expects nothing

Juan Muñoz is a key player in the revitalization of the human figure as a main subject in contemporary sculpture. Muñoz’s work bridges classical with avant- garde sculpture. In the early 90’s, he introduced narrative into his practice, staging scenes, creating spaces and presenting groups of sculptures that theatrically interact with each other. In the process, Muñoz established himself as one of Europe’s most innovative artists. Muñoz’s sculpture presents itself to the spectator as a challenge to his or her very existence. It brings together classical tradition with contemporary concepts into imagery that, whether in isolated figures or in groups, invokes solitude, alienation and the lack of communication as inescapable components of the human condition.
