克里斯蒂娜 · 伊格莱西亚斯
Marian Goodman Gallery is pleased to continue our artist-centric newsletter IN FOCUS, where we take the time to delve deeply into one artist on the MGG roster at a time. Aiming to show a fuller picture of the breadth of our artists' careers, we will feature our favorite stories, interviews, artists’ writings and videos from the archive, as well as new and upcoming projects.
Throughout her career, Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias (b. November 1956) has defined a unique sculptural vocabulary, building immersive and experiential environments that reference and unite architecture, literature, and culturally site-specific influences. Through a language of constructed and natural forms rendered in various materials and ranging from suspended pavilions, latticed panels, passageways, and mazes, to walls imbued with texts and structural and vegetative forms, she poetically redefines space by confounding interior and exterior, organic and artifice, combining industrial materials with natural elements to produce unexpected new sensory sites for the viewer.
Today, follow along as we explore all facets of Iglesias’ practice, taking a look at both recent and past sculptural projects.
A video walk-through of Iglesias's 2011 exhibition at Marian Goodman Gallery, New York. Featuring classic elements of Iglesias's sculptural practice, including interior fountains ("Pozos" as Iglesias prefers) and large silkscreens, the video transports you to a quiet, reflective space.
