The Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències hosts the open-access exhibition by Igor Mitoraj, a set of fifteen large-scale bronze sculptures that are located in different outdoor spaces of the complex.
The exhibit, carried out in collaboration with the Contini Art Gallery and the Atelier Mitoraj, brings together some of the Polish artist's work inspired by the concept of shattered beauty. It revolves around fragmented pieces, like the works of the ancient Greco-Roman culture with a certain post-modern touch.
Igor Mitoraj was an international artist who combined modernity with the classical and renaissance tradition in his works. In those works, all made using fine material like bronze and marble, he denounces the abandonment of the masterpieces of antiquity by some places. Mitoraj is known throughout the world for his gigantic sculptures related to mythological and historical themes. His Greek and Roman "heroes" and "gods" are scattered over half the world, from Paris to the Vatican Museums, from Pompeii to the United States.
