"Two silent figures are dreaming and talking with colors. They are sharing a silent conversation in the sky of Miami – a conversation from their hearts," explains Jaume Plensa about his new, site-specific installation. Two identical, internally-lit, resin figures symbolically converse by constantly changing colors – green, blue, yellow, purple – twenty feet above the busy traffic and noise of South Beach. Similar to Plensa’s family of totem works, the forms were inspired by holy ascetics and philosophers who contemplated humanity and preached to crowds seated atop pillars during the Byzantine Empire. Spirituality and the soul have long been areas of exploration in Plensa’s artwork. Poets in Miami presents a modern-day space for meditation to the South Beach community and invites visitors to look inward to find a common universal truth: an idea at the core of Plensa’s practice.
