PHYLLIDA BARLOW CATALOG
Phyllida Barlow visited Chillida Leku in autumn 2022 to work on the exhibition she created for the museum. Barlow's “anti-monumental” sculptures, made with materials such as cardboard, fabric, plywood and cement, and his constructions—often painted in vibrant colors—connect with some concepts in Chillida's work such as gravity, mass and materiality. .
One of the constants in Chillida's career was the creation of spatial narratives in the landscapes and buildings in which his work was exhibited. Likewise, for Barlow, space plays a very important role in his work, as do the elements he placed in it. In this way, the artist studied the parameters of buildings to create unforeseen obstacles that gave her sculptures a dramatic presence.
