Conference interpreter at Jeff Wall’s exhibition at MACBA

Renowned Canadian artist Jeff Wall presents his latest work at the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (Macba). This piece recreates a pivotal moment in Juan Marsé’s novel “Últimas tardes con Teresa”, capturing Hortensia, aka ‘la Jeringa’, in a decisive phone call.

Using the “tableau vivant” technique, Wall creates detailed and meaningful scenes. Collaboration with researcher Jorge Ribalta has been essential to recreate the details with precision, fusing literary research with artistic practice.

Wall’s exhibition at Macba pays homage to Barcelona’s rich literary heritage, demonstrating the power of art to reinterpret reality. The work will be permanently on display at Macba and at the Carmel-Juan Marsé library, challenging and redefining the boundaries of contemporary photography.
