ART MARIO MERZ

Mario Merz retrospective in Madrid showcases consumerism versus nature

Madrid, Oct 10 (EFE).- A critique of the consumerism of modern-day’s capitalist society through the use of organic materials such as clay, branches and wax is the focus of "Time is Mute," the Reina Sofía Museum’s retrospective dedicated to Mario Merz (Milan, 1925-2003).

"Little has been seen of Merz in Spain, so the objective of this exhibition is to bring back the Itialian artist, who has practically disappeared from the contemporary art scene, despite the fact that the themes that his works portray and their approach is totally current," Reina Sofía Museum Director Manuel Borja-Villel told EFE.

The exhibition, which can be seen at the Palacio de Velázquez in Retiro Park in the center of Madrid, is based on two main ideas, and shows the concept of ??wanting to connect an individual associated with consumerism and mass production with nature.

"His interest in nature, in ecology, for breaking the rigidities of a closed vision, as well as defending a full and poetic life are things that are reflected in his work," Borja-Villel said.
