Ever watched someone watching something? How we react and relate to museum exhibitions is the theme of this photographic project by Carlos Collado (Barcelona, 1977), which comes to life in the Museum of Ceramics.
The author focuses on visitors’ attitudes and behaviours upon viewing the objects in the collection. Collado is interested in the moment when an individual contemplates something that awakens their senses, and he has chosen the rooms of the Ceramics Museum to document it over the last year.
Curiosity, peacefulness, intimacy and exhaustion are some of the many reactions experienced here, as well as the feeling that through contemplation of an exhibit, people seem to forget about their everyday concerns and fears.
The exhibition opens on 15th November and runs until 3rd March 2013. Click here for more information.
