Catalogue Note

"The balconies are absolutely full-grown, mature works. They presume a figurative element, and they manipulate architecture in a very theatrical way. They activate space by transforming its scale. By putting a balcony on the wall, you changed its scale. All of a sudden, the room becomes the sculpture. That has a precedent in Minimalism and Conceptual art." 

Paul Schimmel, "An Interview with Juan Muñoz," in Exh. Cat., The Art Institute of Chicago, Juan Muñoz, 2001, p. 146
