Description

Bernat Daviu studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martin's and is based in Barcelona. 'Every time I go up to the terrace at Soho House Barcelona, I am impressed by the intimidating presence of the large Virgin of La Mercè, patron of Barcelona, on the dome of the church behind the House,' says Daviu. 'The Virgin seems to be staring at the people hanging out on the terrace. I made an image of a cocktail with the colours of the building's facade. I included two olives in the drink, which at the same time function as the eyes of La Mercè gazing around.' Kate Bryan, head of collections at Soho House, says: 'Bernat Daviu's practice encompasses painting, costume-design, performance and video. He explores affinities and paradoxes that oscillate between the absurd, the ironic and the romantic.'
