Kiwayu Miquel Barceló 07.04/28.05 2022

The underwater plunge every morning, and the hours of painting and reading, provided me with at least a kind of quiet stupor. I have often noticed that when in life everything seems to go to hell, in the studio things happen.

Galería Elvira González is pleased to announce the exhibition Kiwayu, by Miquel Barceló, opening on Thursday, April 7th.

The 26 watercolors and the 11 ceramics in the show were made by Barceló during the pandemic between the island of Kiwayu, in the archipelago of Lamu in Kenya (2021) and the island of Majorca (2020), where the artist has his atelier and a ceramic workshop. The show is a hymn to life, a moment of joie de vivre that the artist wants to share with the viewer, an invitation to enjoy the sea and its fruits, the heat, the feeling of freedom and the joy of living by the water. The sea has been a permanent source of inspiration for the Majorcan artist.

On the occasion of the exhibition a catalog with texts by Miquel Barceló and the writer Paul Bowles will be published.
