Space Is a Reality by Ana Esteve Llorens
Spanish artist Ana Esteve Llorens presents a new group of sculptures and installations that enquire about the reality of space as a sensory experience.
Utilizing natural and manufactured materials, craft techniques and industrial processes, the artist engages with different methods of production and with a local and international community of Makers. Within each work, the conversation between art, craft and design is expanded. Space is a Reality continues and deepens the artist’s research on recurrent concepts such as time, place and perception, and the relationship between memory, abstraction and the process of making.
