Apocalypse Lamb, New York (1989–2018), Apocalypse Lamb, Barcelona (1997–2018)
Miralda (Spain, 1955) is one of the three famous artists of the Hispanic world to close “Tedium” programme together with Isabel Rocamora (Spain, 1968) and Teresa Serrano (Mexico, 1936). It may seem that this is a purely linguistic community. Still, the works of those artists brought together offer a journey from the inside to the outside through interiorization of the space around.
“Apocalypse Lamb, New York” (1989–2018) and “Apocalypse Lamb, Barcelona” (1997–2018) by Miralda offer a contrast finale to the programme. These works are quintessential to widescale performative practices of the artist. Everyone in the audience is invited to attend a wedding between the Columbus Monument in Barcelona and the Statue of Liberty in New York and give them a majestic (18 х 15 m) bridal bedspread with the Lamb of the Apocalypse. In these videos, the great wide open is no longer approached as a source of danger: the streets become a scene and concentrations of life.
