Cristina Iglesias Metonymy
An extensive monograph on the artist's work, Metonymy was published on the occasion of a major exhibition organized by the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid which ran from February 6 - May 13, 2013.
Exhibited in numerous places around the world—even underwater in the Pacific—Cristina Iglesias’s sculptures and installations are gathered here for this major retrospective. In five essays following a thematic rather than chronological order, this catalogue is a unique occasion to dig into Cristina Iglesias’s personal career. Beginning at the crossroads of Arte Povera, Minimalism or Land Art, her work demonstrates a very precocious taste for nature.
Through a wide selection of plates, the catalogue also underlines the artist’s taste for her country of origin, especially regarding Islamic Art and the Baroque masterpieces of the Spanish Golden Age. Exploring a constantly evolving world, Cristina Iglesias's oeuvre forms an organism, a living microcosm where art, nature and the public interact.
