Double Bind & Around at HangarBicocca in Milan is the first solo exhibition in Italy devoted to Juan Muñoz, one of the most important artists to emerge in Spain after the Franco dictatorship.
Muñoz (1953-2001), who saw himself as a storyteller, was a visionary who placed the human figure at the centre of his art, working primarily in papier-mâché, resin and bronze.
The exhibition centres on his most significant work, Double Bind, an installation made in 2001 for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in London, and now being shown again for the first time.
In total there are 15 installations on display, covering 5,300 square metres and including over 100 sculptures. Next to Double Bind, there are works like The Wasteland (1986), Ventriloquist Looking at a Double Interior (1988-2000), Conversation Piece, Dublin (1994), The Nature of Visual Illusion (1994-1997) and Many Times (1999).
