The sculptures and installations of Jaume Plensa have undergone several changes over the years, but he has consistently created works that in some way is connected to universal themes of spirituality, the physical body and the collective memory. His art springs from literature, psychology, biology, language and history. Whether made out of steel, glass, bronze, alabaster or by light, vibration or sound, his ideas and associations are always brought forward. Plensa believes sculptures to be an extraordinary vehicle for accessing emotions and thoughts. His work asks questions and sets up situations that encourage us to think and think again, to talk with one another, to be silent and meditative, to touch, and experience togetherness. Once placed in the great outdoors of Djurgården, Plensa’s sculptures will face each other, as if trying to catch each other’s’ eye and despite their magnitude, will induce a feeling of intimacy, reverence and enhanced calm.

´Art gives people the possibility to dream. I have always understood art as a path to knowledge and way towards something better. I decided many years ago that my work would carry a sense of hope´.         -Jaume Plensa
