Please see the earlier video below which was made at and by the Museu de Montserrat and is more direct by way of a depiction and sense of place and intervention by the artist.
In July 2016, during a visit by Sean Scully to the Romanesque church of St. Cecilia, a video was recorded in which the Irish painter explains how the Sean Scully Art Center project was born and what they have been their motivations when creating the set of works on display.
El mes de juliol de 2016, durant una visita de Sean Scully a l’església romànica de Santa Cecília, es va enregistrar un vídeo en el qual el pintor irlandès explica com va néixer el projecte del Centre d’Art Sean Scully i quines han estat les seves motivacions a l’hora de crear el conjunt d’obres que s’hi exposen.
Santa Cecilia de Montserrat is a place imbued with deep spiritual, historical and artistic significance. It was founded more than one thousand years ago, during the creation of Carolingian Catalonia. After the restoration of the Romanesque church by Barcelona Provincial Council (between 2013 and 2015), Sean Scully started to decorate the interior.
Thanks to his artistic intervention, the church has become an important example of the intersection between Christianity and genuine avant-garde art. The Benedictine community of Montserrat wishes you a pleasant and fruitful visit to this emblematic site.
