Permanent Collection: Cristina Iglesias at Centro Botín

September 4, 2019

Cristina Iglesias has designed a site-specific piece for the Botín Centre and the Pereda Gardens, consisting of four pools and a pond, entitled Desde lo subterráneo (From the Underground). The sculptural intervention features five structures in grey stone enclosing overlapping iron pieces forming hollow spaces. They evoke the subterranean, the things that exist beneath the surface. Phreatic zones, underground areas saturated with water, pockets of water filled with foliage and molluscs, life speaking of the primordial ocean that gave origin to all forms of life on Earth.
