'Walking on faces' by Bernardi Roig

5 Votes

This exhibition had  its starting point last April, when the artist Bernardi Roig (Palma, 1965) launched a call through the media and social networks to carry out a multidisciplinary project in the building of La Llotja in Palma.

1,870 people attended the call and were photographed individually with closed eyes and imitating one of the three expressions proposed by the artist. The countenances that were taken as a model belonged to stone sculptures of Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, an eighteenth century Austrian artist and maestro of the distortion of the face.

The images obtained during the four photo sessions are now displayed in this exhibition entitled Walking on faces (Walking on faces). They do so in a fairly atypical manner, printed on wooden tiles of 68x68 cm and completely covering the floor of the Llotja. The images are signed by the artist on the back and once the exhibition is finished they will be given to all those who lent their face to this project.
