Cristina Iglesias Thomas Struth - Constructions Of The Imagination
Estrella De Diego
Idea Code 14317
Published with the exhibition ‘On Reality’ by sculptor Cristina Iglesias and photographer Thomas Struth, this book explores the concept of the Future and other modern myths through the two artists’ work. While Struth turns his gaze towards the empty or decommissioned spaces of technological environs and large theme parks to chase the future myth, Iglesias is likewise inspired by science fiction, as space elevators reach for the stratosphere and water metaphors materialise in tangled corridors and green glass. Both deal with liminal spaces in their works, making visible a lyrical future of suspended moments wherein our very notion of the passage of time is investigated.
