A Room Where it Always Rains

This is a pretty unique sculpture that sits on the bustling Plaja Del Mar promenade. Known locally as Una habitació on sempre plou, which translates to the “Room Where it Always Rains”. This creative display is the work of Juan Monuz, a Spanish sculptor described as one of the most complex artists of the post-Franco Spanish era. This sculpture consists of a rusty cage in which are enclosed cloaked, featureless and genderless figurines. The bronze figures are arranged in a way to seem like they are engaging in conversation. However, their featureless appearance is said to indicate the isolation humans have in modern society.
