Exhibition – Madrid, Spain
La Quinta del Sordo (Deaf Man’s Villa), created by Philippe Parreno with ACCIONA Cultura’s production and the Beyeler Foundation’s collaboration, is an 40 minutes audiovisual show that revives Goya’s famous dwelling place through cutting-edge audiovisual technology.
This video art work uses images, sound effects and music to recreate the physical space and atmosphere of the Quinta del Sordo (Deaf Man’s Villa), the dwelling place where Goya painted his emblematic Black Paintings between 1823 and 1825.
The projection is meant to be an immersive experience in which the screen, like the glow of a fire, brings the spectators together, seated in a semicircle. It is shown in an installation produced by ACCIONA Cultura in Room 64-65 of the Museo Nacional del Prado.
