“The Cathedral of Malaga. An unfinished symphony” exhibition by Marinauno

The exhibition “The Cathedral of Malaga. An unfinished symphony” has been designed in three different formats; an installation located in the trascoro of the cathedral, a book and an audiovisual piece. With these three systems the process of the construction of the cathedral and those signs of identity that make the temple a unique building in the history of architecture is explained.

The installation located in the trascoro is raised with a structure of scaffolding from which they take off large format images, drawings and explanatory texts. An installation that symbolizes that the cathedral of Malaga is under construction.

In the same way the audiovisual piece of the exhibition supposes a journey through time in the constructive process of the temple. A trip that begins in 1528 with that Renaissance cathedral that rose like an impregnable fortress and that keeps in its interior and like a treasure, a sophisticated golden palace.

A trip that stops in 1588 when the works are paralyzed to regain momentum again in 1721 with the Baroque cathedral, where the interior architecture of the temple emerges to the exterior turning the temple into a palace. A citadel full of towers whose completion was frustrated again in 1782.

As if it were a musical composition, in the presented audiovisual piece there are times of greater activity with times of silence, which anticipate the start-up of the works once again. A trip that has not yet concluded because the cathedral of Malaga is a building under construction. While waiting for its completion, the cathedral of Malaga is an unfinished symphony. Commissioners of the exhibition and authors of the book: Juan Manuel Sánchez La Chica and Adolfo de la Torre Prieto.
