Xavier Veilhan. Architectones. Barcelona Pavilion

“Where would I ultimately like to exhibit my work? Whilst searching for an answer to this question, I began to consider a series of atypical exhibitions in architectural landmarks of the last hundred years. This reflects the celebration of contemporary architects in my solo exhibition in Versailles (2009). From now on I would like to interact with their work rather than with them as an individual, by creating situations specific to each of their constructions. The locations were chosen from my personal pantheon.” Xavier Veilhan, 2012.

“The project Architectones by Xavier Veilhan is a gamble for radically breaking with the principles of the modern movement that defined the architecture of the pavilion, putting the visitors in an active role in front of the building, making them think about what happens there through an exhibition that reconsiders the use of materials and forms of its architecture and offering the ability to interact with it from a new point of view.” Gonzalo Herrero Delicado, 2014.
