Review: Can You Hear Me?

In this 75-minute film Ballesteros closely accompanies Plensa during the preparation of an installation for the lobby of a New York skyscraper, the creation of a retrospective at the MACBA in Barcelona, the inauguration of an exhibition in Stockholm and the completion of other projects in various locations in France, Madrid and Japan in order to understand the poetic and symbolistic aspects of his enormous, well-known sculptures. With just a few minutes dedicated to his life story (consisting of just a clutch of black-and-white photos), to round off this in-depth and flattering analysis, the director preferred to hand the microphone over to art consultants and various directors of suitably prestigious museums and galleries, who give their opinions on the meaning of Plensa’s legacy.
