Meeting place IV

Meeting place IV visits Chillida Leku

As an extension of the Gravity Zero exhibition, the museum will temporarily house Meeting Place IV, a work by Chillida belonging to the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum. The suspended sculpture weighing 16 tonnes will be supported by a new structure designed for Chillida Leku.

This large suspended sculpture, made between 1973 and 1974 in reinforced concrete, is part of a series of seven works, most of them on a monumental scale and conceived to be exhibited in public places.

The installation project at Chillida Leku has involved the collaboration of Tecnalia, the largest applied research and technological development center in Spain, and Loire Gestamp, one of the largest machine tool manufacturers of the territory. Both are working on a structure that will be able to support the 16 tonnes weight of the sculpture.
