Talk

Cristina Iglesias’ horizontal fountains, submerged rooms and tropical mazes bring together language, architecture and botany to create immersive spaces of contemplation. Whether building undersea architectures for marine life or revealing underground rivers in busy urban centres, the power and presence of water is central to her practice. Here she is joined in conversation with Whitechapel Gallery Director Iwona Blazwick and Richard Noble to discuss her new monograph, Liquid Sculpture, and her latest commissions. 

This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Water / Fluidity.

About Cristina Iglesias

Renowned for her sculptures woven, cast or constructed from metal, wood and alabaster, Iglesias also creates outdoor structures and installations using water. Her work can be found in inner cities or remote islands, as a site of pilgrimage for humans or as a habitat for animals.
