Photo: Ben Kelmer

Hayon realized Mediterranean Digital Baroque at therequest of gallery owner David Gill. This first large-scaleautonomous installation consisted of ceramic elementsand wall paintings. The version on display here wascommissioned by the Groninger Museum. MediterraneanDigital Baroque also represented Hayon's breakthroughin the world of art and design. For years prior to this,Hayon had been making all kinds of drawings daily.

This installation is an explosion, where it looks like all thecreative energy that had been held in check for all theseyears had suddenly burst loose.The installation, with cacti, pigs and birds, evokes ideasof a garden or a landscape. It is a congealed memory ofa visit to a cactus park on the island of Lanzarote. The drawings are a reflection of Hayon's personal cosmologyand are full of jokes and details, with clear influencesfrom Spanish art history, such as surrealism and Picasso.According to Hayon, it is a kind of genesis. It this case, itconcerns creativity, cacti and pigs and narratives full ofstruggle, love and salvation.
