Juan Muñoz: Many Times

Photo by Insaneyouth

You go into the room and discover 100 almost identical ceramic figures resembling asian men in small groups, as if they were chatting in a public park. Sometimes the faces reflect happiness, others avoid their counterparts, and the relation between them and the spectator becomes a game between individuals who look at each other with curiosity but without empathy.

This instalation, called "Many Times", is the center of the retrospective dedicated to spanish artist Juan Muñoz, curated by the Tate Modern and now showing at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, in Madrid. The whole exhibition is brilliant, but "Many Times" is an experience in its own.
