Cristina Iglesias, Políptico VII, (2002)
The structures that appear in Cristina Iglesias’ series of copper photographs are deceptively simple. Iglesias takes wooden or cardboard boxes and uses them to make ephemeral sculptures, and then combines them so as to form an urban landscape made out of waste and detritus. She then photographs these models and enlarges the images, emphasizing their distortion. Finally, the image is screenprinted onto a shiny surface that makes it lose its photographic trace, so that it becomes an undefined architectural element or structure. The scale, the precarious materials and the ephemeral aspect of the structure all contribute to making the work somehow vague, and place the spectator in a unique and ambiguous world.
