The undulating structure meanders through the grassy plot to envelops visitors and make them a part of the entire experience. It is composed of three bi-dimensional mirrored steel, self-supporting planes which form a series of inside-outside spaces structured using concavities and convexities. The planes are 3.2-meters-high and only 40-millimeters-thick, with minimal anchoring points to hold them in place.

“We wanted to build an uncertain experience, a situation of estrangement, one which we do not intend on controlling, as the possibilities of reflection and deformation provoked by the concave and convex mirrored steel bi-dimensional planes are infinite, as we moved through it.”

The installation references a project by Jose Antonio Coderch built in Barcelona between 1980 and 1984. The curves and counter-curves generate a universe of reflections, multiplications and deformations, reminiscent of Francis Bacon portraits.
