»A un paso de Berlín (A station towards Berlin)«
Exhibition: October 7 – December 16, 2016
Opening hours: Mon-Thu 15-18h, Fri 12-15h
This project defines itself as museological research and sheds light on the everyday reality and more remarkable moments in the life of a work of art. The ensemble of saints in Road to Calvary left Spain for the first time for a major exhibition on the Spanish Siglo de Oro at the Gemäldegalerie Berlin, accompanied by a camera. The artist’s images depict several phases in the life of the sculptures: from the museum in Valladolid, through the Easter processions and journey to Germany, to a museum visitor observing the work in Berlin – offering a rare look behind the scenes. What appreciation do the sculptures experience when their life as a work of art and religious object in continuous liturgical use is made visible through photography and video, unusual media for Baroque sculptures? Collado’s images, presented in the Instituto Cervantes and Pixel Grain to accompany the major exhibition at the Gemäldegalerie, expand our view of the work of art and its world, giving expression to today’s perception and use of a centuries-old object.
Carlos Collado is a freelance photographer and visual artist specialized in audiences. His photography focuses on the consumption of culture in contemporary societies.
A project by Instituto Cervantes, Gemäldegalerie der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin and Museo Nacional de Escultura (Valladolid, Spain).
