Jaume Plensa has often said that sculpture is an ideal way of posing questions. Firenze II (1992), the work that marks the start of Plensa’s exhibition at MACBA, is a huge question mark that leans against the wall. We stand before the interrogative itself. The sign ‘?’ reminds us that, every time we use it, a statement becomes a question. Isn’t that precisely one of the functions of sculpture? Keeping up uncertainty, celebrating imprecision? Generating perplexity, hesitation, unsureness? Inspiring suspicion, increasing incredulity, sowing scepticism?
