What is this strange figure with a bloated sack around his lower body? He is holding a hoop with bells around his waist, which makes him look like a jester. He seems condemned to stay in place or to spin around, frozen, and animated, petrified, and alive at the same time.
Juan Munoz defines sculpture as entangled mobility. He was one of the first sculptors to return to the language of figuration in 1980. His figures are realistic but smaller than life and without a precise identity. Juan Munoz stages them for the viewer. In Last of Two: One there is only one figure. The title evokes the absence of a companion and reinforces the impression of solitude.
