Baltazar Torres: A perfect day in a perfect world

The Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation in Mallorca hosts until September 23rd four installations by Portuguese artist Baltazar Torres. Known for his work with miniatures that create vast scenes which reflect on issues of ecology and confront the human being with the planet itself. By establishing a playful relation of scales, Torres takes the viewer to experience a panoramic view of the subject he is representing. This exhibition focuses on the city as “a world of structural conflicts that we must inevitably live with”. Ridiculously monstrous cities in which humans dwell suffocated by their own rubbish, surrounded by roads and construction sites, paint a grim picture of our environment and reminds us of a situation that is all but natural.
