Cristina Iglesias (1956, San Sebastián) belongs to a generation of artists who have transformed the concept of sculpture since the 1980s. Her work links the tradition of sculpture as an autonomous object and the aim of fragmenting and enlivening architecture,environments and suspended elements. Cristina Iglesias while providing the sensation of experiencing spaces as yet another element of her works.In her poetics this Spanish artist combines her contemporaneity— supported by her interest in the limits of traditional techniques developed by Arte Povera—with her profound roots in the baroque tradition and its compositional instability, shifting displacement and diverse atmospheres. The artist challenges the idea of representation by means of an aesthetic vocabulary based on the use of varied materials (concrete, alabaster, resin, iron, glass, sometimes combined with plant motifs such as bamboo and dead leaves) and techniques (bas-relief, tapestry and large-format silkscreen on silk and copper) in which the boundary between illusion and reality disappears. For this occasion, we have selected a body of works that exemplify the special use of space and architectural structures that the artist uses to compose her stimulating environments and suspended elements.
The art magazine Interfunktionen, published in Cologne from 1968 to 1975, drew together much of Central European artistic activity of the sixties and seventies. A prestigious review directly linked to the most prominent figures in the Düsseldorf Kunstacademie (Beuys, Immendorf, Polke...) it also boasted the direct involvement of the most spirited and reflexive artists of the times (Acconci, Broodthaers, Nauman, Roth...). This book has been produced in collaboration with Fritz Heubach, the first editor of the review, and depicts the experience of those years by means of original documents (some of them hitherto unpublished), artworks and artists’ writings.
Este libro induce al lector a llevar a cabo un recorrido a través de la obra de Antoni Tàpies, sin tener en cuenta la secuencia histórica de las diversas creaciones. El hilo conductor que la autora propone son las constantes que delimitan la aproximación creativa de Tàpies y la convierten en invariable y sólida.
From October 1989 until September 1995, fourteen site specific projects found their home in the city of Barcelona. Created by Christian Boltanski, John Cage, Jan Dibbets, Rodney Graham, Rebecca Horn, Jannis Kounellis, Richard Long, Mario Merz, Bruce Nauman, Sigmar Polke, Aureli Ruiz & José Maldonado, Ulrich Rückriem, and Lawrence Weiner, the works provided a significant overview of important installation work of the second half of the 20th century. This book documents the intense experience of the project, which was organized by the Espai Poblenou Foundation.
