5 October – 5 December 2021
Rooms 4 and 5. First floor.
The exhibition “The Environment and Santiago de Compostela,” which opened to the public on October 5, in Rooms 4 and 5 on the Museum’s first floor, is centred on the extremely important theme of The Environment.
This year we will focus on how the Environment and the changes that we are experiencing affect Santiago de Compostela and our life in the Galician capital.
Granell shows, in his archives and in different texts, that he was aware of and interested in the power of nature and its importance, an addition to his passion for different animals, among which the native species of his beloved Galicia stand out.
The exhibition on display in Room 4, curated by Natalia Fernández Segarra, is made up of a selection of works by Eugenio Granell that belong to the Foundation’s collection, as well as texts by Granell.
Years ago, the Surrealists began to use the “objet trouvé” as a work of art. There is Marcel Duchamp’s well-known urinal, which the artist entitled “Fountain”. Room 4 displays the branch that Granell found and entitled “Dancer from Cadiz”.
Room 5 displays the work of two artists with a great capacity for invention: Reina D’Hoore and Jo Redpath. They both use materials found in nature to produce imaginative creations that are, naturally, unusual.
