Intersections: Bernardi Roig



Included in museum admission; free for members

Bernardi Roig, Acetón, 2005

Bernardi Roig was born in 1965 in Palma de Mallorca and currently lives and works between Madrid and Binissalem, Mallorca, Spain. Employing a variety of media and blending philosophical and literary appropriations from classical myths, Baroque theatricality, and themes of memento mori, Roig’s work addresses existential dualities of blinding and illumination, absence and presence, memory and temporality, as well as entrapment and liberation.

Roig’s work has been exhibited internationally at numerous venues including the Museum of Lázaro Galdiano in Madrid; Kunstmuseum in Bergen; Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró in Palma de Mallorca; Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels; Fundación Ludwig in Havana; Institut Valencià d’Art Modern in Valencia; Alte Pinakothek in Munich; and Zhu Qizhan Art Museum in Shanghai. His work is found in public and private collections across the world.

Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.

Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum’s galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.

Intersections is supported by Phillips International Forum members.
