Spots Honeymoon, 1995

One of Miralda’s most celebrated and longer-lasting works is Honeymoon Project. Made over a period of six years – from 1986 to 1992 – in over twenty cities around the world, it consisted of a series of ceremonial actions celebrating the imaginary and symbolic wedding between two emblematic monuments on either side of the Atlantic, the Statue of Liberty in New York and the monument to Christopher Columbus in the harbour of Barcelona. Located on the same latitude and of similar age, they symbolise the exchange of products, ideas and traditions uniting the Old and New Worlds since 1492. Miralda galvanised thousands of people into generating and participating in over forty actions representing the different stages of a wedding ritual.

Honeymoon I & II / ‘Trossos’ (1987) is a TV programme made by Miralda and the team of TV3’s series Trossos on the occasion of the presentation of the bride’s trousseau in Terrassa; Monuments in Love (1992) is a chronicle of the main events of Honeymoon Project; and Spots Honeymoon (1995), a record of the TV news items and publicity spots on the project broadcast by various television channels in the world.
