There were very short and simple poems but at the same time very intense and sensual, about sex, love, death and solitude”, which made Plensa see “an extraordinary poet, one of the best in explaining the relationship between us people and life.”
“There are books so delightful that I’d like to stay and live there” said Catalan journalist Emili Manzano i Mulet. There are also bookstores – as charming as the books, I’d add.
“Sculpture is the best way to pose a question” says Jaume Plensa, artist born in Barcelona in 1955. His solo exhibition at MACBA runs until April 22nd so these days are a great opportunity to see it, that if you haven’t already.
