Solo Exhibition

Cristina Iglesias Sainsbury Centre

Cristina Iglesias presents two sculptures at the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park.

The first work, Celosía XI (Hafsa Bint Al-Hayy) (2006), consists of seven terracotta screens that evoke the lattices in Arab architecture. Iglesias co-opts their traditional geometric patterns by incorporating words into the structure of the screens. Passing through the enclosures is akin to reading passages of text. 

The immersive installation, Vegetation Room III (2005), is a defined architectural space. The interior walls are casts of organic vegetation. 

This display reunites the work of Cristina Iglesias and Norman Foster, who have collaborated on a number of projects. Iglesias' sculpture can be seen in front of the Bloomberg Headquarters, London, which was designed by Norman Foster. She has also created a canopy for the façade of the Norman Foster Foundation in Madrid.
