CRISTINA IGLESIAS WORKSHOP. 2018

FROM THE INTERNAL SETTING OF THE STUDY TO THE EXTERNAL LANDSCAPE, THE STREETS AND NATURE.

OPENED

From 17th until Cortesía Estudio Cristina Iglesias. Fotógrafo: López de Zubiria28th September 2018 Cristina Iglesias proposes an encounter, an exploratory workshop based on the work process, from the private reflection inthe studio and its diverse manifestations, to the actual expression of the project that becomes visible in the public realm.

Workshop participants will be asked to propose a project on a given theme and in a place of their own choice, which theywill then develop throughout the workshop, through drawings, texts, plans, models or video.

The participants will be prompted to walk through the city of Santander, its immediate surroundings, to find places or backdrops that will serve for the development of their projects. Moreover, to immerse themselves in the process, the participantswill visit the foundry in Eibar, where the artist works, and they will see her project on Santa Clara Island, in San Sebastián.

The setting up of the exhibition CRISTINA IGLESIAS:INTERSPACES at the Botín Centre will provide the participants an acquaintance with of the way in which the artist's work occupies space, constructing a site. In this manner, a work of art doesnot fully come into being until it is built, assembled in the space and setting into which it is placed. We complete the work.

To close the workshop, the participants will also have to present and defend their projects before a panel of professionalswho will study and evaluate the projects.

Architect Maddi Rotaeche will be providing her experience and support during the workshop.

Epson's special collaboration will allow to offer the technical conditions adapted to materialize the projects produced by the participants during the workshop.
