Dar sentido al lugar: La function de la escultura segùn Richard Serra
MetadataShow full item record
The essay is about the relationship of Richard Serra's sculpture with the space it is situated in, finding the differences between installing in landscape, in urban areas and architecture. The intervention of the sculptor in the landscape gives shape to the relationship of the body with the environment and intensifies the experience of this relationship in an undetermined space where borders are not visible. When the scupture interacts with a urban space, and when it is installed in a pre-existing architecture, in stead of creating borders and horizons, sculpture points out present borders and puts them under strain. Morover, since architecture is always historically and culturally connotated, sculpture can be a visual commentary to the container it is situated in.
