For Lorca the folkloric and surrealistic image of green
is simply, a longed-for, indefinable state of mind...
The Casa de Los Tiros is a beautiful palace and museum in the heart of Granada. Within the collection are paintings, prints, ceramics, and books.
I have linked three spaces in the Museum to the three exhibition spaces. Each room in the exhibition space is a colour chosen in relation to the room in the collection. The green ‘Sala de Viajeros’ becomes a hidden garden, a design from a ceramic plate or a the fruit and flowers on a fabric. Blue is the 19th century ‘Gabinete Isabelina”. Red is from the extraordinary red frames of the 16th Century paintings on the stairs.
The exhibition will take place from 2 September until 26 September.
