Jean Claude Farhi Exhibition
A free exhibition by Jean Claude Farhi that includes eleven ochre pieces of iron in which the constant geometry, the most typical characteristic of this Parisian artist, can be admired.
Until 19th February 2012
The sculptures on display at the Umbracle are nine ochre-coloured iron pieces and one piece of black covered Corten. Additionally, there is one of his works on display in the Museum’s Calle Menor, They were made between 1998 and 2011.
The exhibition is dedicated to those aspects that have become especially significant to the artist from an intimate and personal approach together with current concerns. Outstanding is the sculpture that evokes the beginning of the exhibition “Lady is a Tramp” (image 1).
The Umbracle hosts the works “Carre' ou cube” (images 2 and 4), "Over the rainbow", "Only you" (Image 5), "I have got you under my skin" "Stormy weather", "Cosmos", "Emotion Triangulere"(main image) "Carre+ rond" (images 6,7 and 8) and the black pieces "Black Tie" and “Engagement rings"(image 3), the latter being located in the Calle Menor of the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum.
Over recent years Farhi’s work has been characterised by the gradual abandoning of colour in favour of steel. Geometry, always present in his work, adopts, through large formats, a special significance: it dominates space by interposing primitive symbols with a personal touch, under the simple appearance of Corten steel often submitted to acid treatment.
The Farhi exhibition shares the Umbracle’s Art Promenade, a space free-of-charge for visitors, with the "Alhambra Towers", by Cristóbal Gabarrón.
