A butterfly flies at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies

In his work -’--- —’-, the artist Daniel Steegmann Mangrané invites us enter an empty exhibition hall only to find a large live butterfly.

Artistic expression takes many forms, and this upcoming project at Fundació Antoni Tàpies is especially concerned with the relationship between space and nature and light and life.             -’--- —’- was devised by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané with the aim of filling a whole room at the foundation with light, emptiness and the flight of a butterfly. And we mean that literally: Morpho helenor is a large blue butterfly whose wings can measure up to 10 centimeters that interacts in a special way with light. When we enter the auditorium we find ourselves alone in the company of the butterfly: it might be flying, it might hidden, it may be in the light or in the darkest corners. Where is it? Can we see it? For how long? And when will it die? You can experience this peculiar event from 27 April to 20 May.

Steegmann Mangrané has prepared a logistically interesting project. The chrysalis will arrive at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies they some days before the inauguration, when the first butterflies will be born. Since they are short-lived, there will be a new butterfly in the auditorium every day.
