“Chillida: The Depth of Air” introduces us to the striking figure of the Spanish sculptor Eduardo Chillida on a journey which is told through the map of his hands, the starting point of his artwork. This also allows us to learn further about the great sculptor, through the powerful influence he exercise today over writers, mathematicians, dancers, philosophers, musicians or architects all over the world.
This means an extraordinary opportunity to discover the full of life path of a boy from the Spanish Postguerra, a boy who just wanted to be a professional goalkeeper and who, because of a fatal injury, ended up becoming one of the most important modern sculptors, along with Rodin, Brancusi, Giacometti and Calder.
