Barcelona’s legendary opera house El Liceureopened this Monday with a concert to an audience of 2,292 potted plants. The Concert For The Biocene came the day after Spain finally ended three-month state of emergency.
The project was born from a collaborative initiative between El Liceu opera house together with Max Estrellagallery and curator Blanca de la Torre. The concert was performed by UceLi string quartet who performed Puccini’s Crisantemi.
Spanish conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia was inspired by the connection he built with nature during the pandemic. I watched what was going on with nature during all this time. I heard many more birds singing. And the plants in my garden and outside growing faster. And, without a doubt, I thought that maybe I could now relate in a much more intimate way with people and nature. – he said.
All the plants were donated to 2,292 health professionals from the Clínic de Barcelona hospital, accompanied by a certificate from the artist.
