About the Artwork
Chillida focuses on the metamorphosis of space and the definition of spatial volume through forms, using materials that represent traditions in industry, architecture, and agriculture.
"Boundaries are actually the main factor in space, just as the present, another boundary, is the main factor in time."
In this tapestry, the absence is as important as the presence. The balance of dualities in his work such as black-white, heaviness-lightness and emptiness-fullness give Chillida’s work a universal importance.
