Film: Architecture of Infinity

Director: Christoph Schaub


Synopsis: Temporality and aging are inherent in every thing and being and transcend, depending on intuition, into the infinite. How can this be thought? What's beyond that? In his personal journey through time and space, filmmaker Christoph Schaub begins with his childhood when his fascination for sacred buildings began. And his amazement about the beginning and the end. Architecture helps to separate the finite from the infinite. It provides protection from the strandless and at the same time creates a feeling of space, according to the narrator. Together with the architects Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli and Alvaro Siza Vieira, the artists James Turrell and Cristina Iglesias and the drummer virtuoso Jojo Mayer, Schaub explores the magic of sacral spaces, the definition of which goes far beyond ecclesiastical buildings. Who owns spirituality? The film goes after "spiritual life" in building and visual arts, but also in nature and literally lifts it beyond the boundaries of thought. A slightly hovering camera lets us immerse ourselves in dreamlike pictures, takes us on a (be) sensual journey into spatial expanses, leads our view into the infinity of the starry sky and into the depths of the sea. Past and future, prehistoric times and light years. Everything is here. – Read more


Opening: Santa Clara's lighthouse

Lighthouse of Santa Clara Island, San Sebastián

"La Casa del Faro se convertirá en una escultura pública, que recree de forma figurada el fondo de la Bahía de la Concha, además de reflejar los cambios que producen las mareas."

Cadena SER, April 18 2017

Permanent piece, opening soon



Centro Botín, Santander

Solo exhibition, open from October 6th to March 3rd, 2018.


Curator: Vicente Todolí, President of the Visual Arts Advisory Committee at Fundación Botín.

"A recipient of Spain’s National Visual Arts Award in 1999, Cristina Iglesias (San Sebastián, 1956) is an internationally renowned Spanish artist. This exhibition consists of a huge collection of pieces that will be on display on the second floor of the west wing of the Centro Botín. Well-known for her sculptural pieces with hanging pavilions, latticework, corridors and labyrinths, Iglesias combines industrial materials and natural elements to create unusual, experiential spaces."

Opening: 'A través'

Fundación per Amor a l’Art, Valencia

Permanent piece, opening on March 14th, 2018.


As stated by the Director of the Per Amor a l’Art foundation, Susana Lloret: “The art centre expands its exhibition space into the environment: the garden, and even the Marxalenes park, are now open to visitors. The garden is surrounded by magic sounds and the reflexion of the water of Cristina Iglesias’s work, by the light and colour of our privileged nature, and by the medieval history of the cellar we have brought back along with other ruins from the same period located in the Marxalenes park, a few minutes from Bombas Gens”. - Bombas Gens Centre d'Art

Exhibition: Entwined

Marian Goodman Gallery, New York

Solo exhibition, open from January 9 to February 10, 2018.


"Throughout her career, Iglesias has defined a unique sculptural vocabulary, building immersive and experiential environments that reference and unite architecture, literature and culturally site-specific influences. Through a language of constructed and natural forms rendered in various materials and ranging from suspended pavilions, latticed panels, passageways, mazes, to walls inbued with texts and structural and vegetative forms, she poetically redefines space by confounding interior and exterior, organic and artifice, combining industrial materials with natural elements to produce unexpected new sensory sites for the viewer." Read full press release here

Exhibition: Grey Matters

Wexner Center for the Arts, The Ohio State University

"This spring, see the vibrant world between black and white. Join us for Gray Matters, a multifaceted survey of 37 contemporary women artists who have explored the practice of grisaille —the French term for working in shades of gray. Ranging from emerging to well-established, these artists challenge an all-too-simplistic notion of colorless “neutrality” as they reveal the variegated spectrum of black, white, gray, and everything in between."
