Poema tàctil, 1972

Tactile Poem, 1972
Object, 25 x 49 x 5 cm
This tactile poem is one of Muntadas’ early works. Although in later works the artist moved towards a social and semiotic analysis of the role of the media, in the early seventies he was more interested in the immediate body and sensory experience than in a conceptual approach. Using ‘poor’ elements such as glass, adhesive tape and cardboard, Muntadas created works based on the perception of different textures and tactile experimentation.

While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
