A heart for Spain

Angel Orensanz exhibition “Time, Space and Innovation” continues flawlessly at the University of Barcelona. The entrance hall of the University’s historic building is lavishing with a selection of Angel’ssculptures and reliefs. On the other side of the building, the garden is decorated with textile elements installed into the environment’s natural floral surroundings.

The entrance hall exhibit is being held for one more month exactly and will be taken down on the 27th of July, the garden instillation, however, will be open to the public untill the 14th of September. We can surely argue which location (NYC or Spain) fits his perception of “home” most suitably. Although he has been a native of NYC since the 80’s, Orensanz was born in Laures, Aragon, Spain and returns to his country of birth frequently.

The dedication to his relationship with Spain is no secret. Since the 1960’s he has been installing sculptures and inviting the public to explore the art space both physically and emotionally. His instillations are powerful, invoking meaning in politics, religion, and a dichotomy between art and nature. His artistic narratives has magnetically captured the public eye in every country he’s traveled to.   They say, “home is where the heart is.” Certainly, somewhere inside of each steel, metal, or copper instilation holds the heart of Angel Orensanz.
