Lives and works in Barcelona, Spain
Plensa’s pieces and his themes are extremely homogeneous. For several years now his work deals with space and time and their reference to the human body. The written word, as a single letter or phrase, is of importance in this context.
Oversized figures in a meditative posture, partly made of translucent material, are illuminated from the inside, written on or form a bonded net of metal letters.
Besides his spectacular big installations in public space, like the Crown Fountain in Chicago, Jaume PLENSA has been exhibiting at museums all around the world and is represented in collections like the MACBA’s.
