The exhibition, “The poetic art of paper” which consists of a series of 38 pieces (1972 – 2001) in which it is especially worth mentioning gravitations, etchings, prints and drawings from the collection from the Chillida-Leku Museum in Hernani (Gipuzkoa – Spain) has already visited countries like Uruguay and Paraguay.
The exhibition also includes phrases and messages written by Chillida, in which he describes his passion for the works of the German composer, Johann Sebastián Bach, and the influence that they had on his artistic expression.
The curator of the exhibition, Julio Niebla, stresses the importance that Eduardo Chillida gave to investigating space and its limits which can easily be seen with volumetric pieces like sculptures, but which is more difficult to transfer to the world of paper.
“The Poetic art of Paper” is now at the Spanish Cultural Centre in Lima (Peru) until the 26th of September. Once the exhibition is over it will continue its journey and head for Argentina; to be more precise, to the cities of Córdoba, Rosario, and Buenos Aires.
