Exhibition of objects and sculptures.

Produced by TOPIC, Toulouse, 2015.


Puppets and marionettes are not just magnificent characters who make shows, they are also objects full of meaning, ready to become symbols or metaphors off stage. In this exhibition, Joan Baixas proposes a different look at marionettes, a motionless and silent theater function for the viewer to create their own stories.


Pieces in the exhibition:


THE SHIP OF LOS LOCOS. Reinterpreting a medieval legend in which the crazy, the different, the excessively happy or hedonistic are punished by banishment, this piece wants to pay homage to the power of imagination to reborn those mischievous characters that emerge from nature and live in books, stories and fables



MANEUVER-MARISOMBA. Inaugurated at Center d'Art Santa Mónica, Barcelona 2015. Nature and culture support the puppet like a rod that catches a fish, technology turns it into a shadow and the soft breath of the public makes it dance.


THE LAST SUPPER - EAT YOUR SOUL. Inaugurated at Instituto Cervantes, Milan 2015, on the occasion of the exhibition on food. Every dinner is the last dinner. For many Every dinner is no dinner. For others Are we eating the rest of a world or feeding the beginning of another?


MANGONES (I to XIV). The marionette as metaphor and allegory. Of threads, commands, controls, manipulations, artifices and other things. Immobile theater about mobile ideas.
