Item description for Cristina Iglesias by Iwona Blazwick...
Working towards the melding of her artistic work and the discipline of architecture, Cristina Iglesias has long been preoccupied with exploring notions of space and of a space within a space. The sheer scale of her sculptures invites viewers to walk around and occasionally through her pieces. On a more microscopic level, Iglesias has remained fascinated by details, with data that deliberately distracts or skews the perception of abstract forms. Rich surfaces, such as cast impressions of local and exotic flora, become progressively consuming as the viewer approaches them. This publication is the first mongraph on the artist, and includes a consideration of work done in collaboration with architects Abalos & Herreros and Paul Robbrech.
