This title offers a superbly illustrated look at the work of contemporary Spanish sculptor, Cristina Iglesias. Cristina Iglesias (b. 1956, San Sebastian, Spain) belongs to a generation of artists who since the late 80s and early 90s have brought about the expansion of the sculptural object into the realm of installation. In contrast with her 'modernist' predecessors, Iglesias often evokes the female body, establishing relationships between it and commonly used objects such as furniture, rooms and architectural constructions. She also challenges the idea of representation by means of an aesthetic vocabulary based on the use of varied materials, such as concrete, resin, iron, and glass, and techniques, including bas-relief, tapestry, and large-format silkscreen, in which the boundaries of illusion and reality disappear. Her first exhibitions were presented in the 1980s, and since then she has had many solo shows, including at the Guggenheim Museum, New York (1997), the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (2003), and most recently the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milan (September 2009 to February 2010).
