Since her beginnings in the Eighties, Cristina Iglesias’ (San Sebastián, 1956) work provides a renewed conception of the practice of sculpture. Her search for poetic and symbolic compromise between pieces and space manifests itself in a dynamic visual display.
The hundred-year-old Zachêta Gallery in Warsaw, Poland, holds an exhibition of Spanish Art from the Eighties and Nineties featuring the work of forty-seven artists. All of the works selected belong to the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, which opens and consolidates its activity throughout the Eighties.
Cristina Iglesias has been very interested in redefining sculpture as an expanded field that leads to a questioning of the object in its relationship with space and architecture. Her sculptures integrate with the architecture of the places they occupy, and thus play with the interweaving of reality and appearances.
