> DESCRIPTION

Juan Muñoz (1953 – 2001) is known for his unsettling sculptures of individuals or groups placed in architectural settings. He described himself as a ‘storyteller’ and created sculptures in a ‘narrative’ manner, which broke with tradition.

In his Conversation Piece series, groups of bronze or resin figures are arranged in carefully staged groupings, apparently frozen mid-conversation. Like many of Munoz’ figures, those in Conversation Piece III  are slightly smaller than life-sized, playing with our sense of scale and perspective and transforming the atmosphere in our Sunley Gallery which overlooks the North Sea.
