Júlia Potrony’s miniature planets invade the Pati Llimona Civic Centre

The exhibition, which can be seen up until the 6th of February, consists of 40 digital photographs representing exterior, interior, rural and urban planets

“All grown-ups were once children... but only a few remember it” is one of the opening sentences in The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the provider of one of the first miniature planets we encounter while we are growing up. Furthermore, the illustration of the little prince standing tall astride his miniscule asteroid is one that remains with many of us, young or old.

While the little prince’s world was drawn by hand, at the time, thanks to technological innovations, nowadays these celestial bodies can be created digitally and digital photography techniques allow us to create tailor-made worlds adapted to our own tastes and imagination.

This concept provides the framework for Júlia Potrony’s Singular planets, the result of combining photographs to create a 360o panorama that includes the totality of all visible angles. Whether they feature exteriors or interiors, urban or rural environments, the 40 celestial bodies currently on display in the Pati Llimona Civic Centre represent distorted realities, fantastical dimensions, worlds of medieval appearance, and entire planets made up of woodland, town squares or the interiors of churches.

The smallest of Potrony’s planets consists of 40 photographs, while the largest includes 230. On a visit to the exhibition we will come across an Urban woodland, or World of queens, a planet consisting of 130 photographs and offering a unique perspective on the Plaça Sant Jaume.
