Cristina Iglesias; Hanging Corridors, 2008
Over the past few years Iglesias has created room size labyrinth installations of hanging corridors. Within the structures of the corridor panels are texts, primarily by the British writer J.G. Ballard allowing the sculpture to be “read” in multiple ways.
These prints began with Iglesias creating a small “hanging corridor” model in her studio and photographing it with a macro lens from a variety of positions and locations. The printer Jacob Samuel and the artist then printed the photographs digitally and transferred the images to copper plates which she drew on using etching and dry point techniques. The plates were then aquatinted and the artist painted directly on the plates with a spit bite solution.
