The exhibit is small in number of pieces and space dedicated. but also in the dimensions of the works exhibited. The perception of the visit is possible just right down the stairs from the main floor of the museum, that is the entrance way, which helps with the itinerary of the visit, clear from the beginning.
The open plan of the room, only broken by two constructions housing some of the works selected, offer a scenario or a general view of what the show is offering, could interpreted as the statement of the curators, at least because it does indeed forces to reflect on the perception and the space containing and contained.
The proposal should then be to review the meaning of both concepts used in the title of the show, by using works from the permanent collection of the center, something that should be highly appreciated in theses days of overspending in loans, with travels and security complicated budgets. But also because the reason for building a collection should be to show the pieces in it and not to stored them for years accumulating dust and being ignored. the curators themselves expressed this: some of the pieces are showed for the first time in the center.
The show is focus in the idea of the sculpture in relation with the space where is inserted.

At least another works have the space surrounding to be perceived by themselves.

This piece could be perhaps, one of the most interesting in the show for the adding of extra content: light and ecology sensitization.
|Jaume Plensa, "What plants can grow along the shore?, 1999|
Another piece using light as one of its components is enclosed and locked in one of the furniture-cabinet-constructions used in the show to individualized the works. It has a small doorway positioned in a way that was not contributing to the appreciation of the piece.
