FONS #03: Miralda
- Fons audiovisual / Artist interviews
Fons de documentació audiovisual (Audiovisual Documentation Collection) is a documentary series in which artists who are part of the MACBA Collection talk about their work.
Fons #03 offers an overview of the career of Antoni Miralda (1942).
Since the sixties, Miralda's work has been notable for its incisive analysis of the mechanisms of state control and the conventions of our consumer society, and its irreverent demystification of the clichés around the production and reception of the artistic object. His early objectual projects soon gave way to ceremonial actions involving collective participation, with food as a protagonist. Food and its rituals of preparation and consumption became the highly symbolic raw materials for his art, ideal for experimenting with new forms of resistance and ways of relating to the environment.
