This retrospective, set to the legendary music of Pink Floyd, takes you on a timeless journey that will awaken the sub-conscious and hold a mirror up to the workings of the painter’s mind.

Gaudi, Architect of the imaginary

Set out on a voyage between dreams and reality, from Parc Guëll to Casa Batllo via Casa Milà and the Sagrada Familia. Through the interplay of lights and materials, the walls of the Carrières de Lumières take on the shape of hyperbolic arches, oblique pillars, undulating façades decorated with organic motifs and glass and ceramic mosaics.

Produced by: Cutback and Gianfranco Iannuzzi.
