In the words of Magdalena Fernández: “1i011 (Forest) is a penetrable installation, made of light aluminum rods of various sizes hinged together, which transforms, breaks and become alive when visitors enter it and run through it. It appears, then, as a vibrant, unstable and mobile “Forest”, formed from a metal structure in unstable equilibrium that agitates, shakes and trembles, interacting with the bodies and other elements found in the space it occupies. This webbing of branches takes over the place in which is located, and it is virtually transformed into a vibrant piece of unpredictable changes and movements. Thus, each viewer makes this landscape in a proper place that is constantly redrawing, in a spatial grid with which he interacts and plays, in a jungle of memories where he can circulate reflectively. In short, this “Forest”, this structure in precarious equilibrium, this exploration through our ways of apprehending and experiencing nature, arises as the possibility of a journey of sensations, in which the occurring mutations, due to the exchange between bodies and spatial intervention device, vitalize the geometric rigor of the structure and the coldness of the materials impregnating them with vibrations, reverberations, waves and resonances”.

I am interested in a process of intermediation, in the admixture of media and the possibility of shaping their mutual resonances. What guides that process is a will to construct. Form takes root in those intermediary relations: form as the conceptual development of a tectonic sensation; form as the presentness of an object that migrates from one medium to the other. In each stage of my work, I have searched for that object, the place that cannot be framed within a medium-specific site. Detached from concrete objects, such a place is to be found between the works as a concept or idea in development. It is an ideogrammatic construction.

Traducido del inglés

Estoy interesado en un proceso de intermediación, en la mezcla de los medios y la posibilidad de transformar sus resonancias mutuas. Lo que guía este proceso es la voluntad de construir. La forma radica en esas relaciones de intermediación: la forma como el desarrollo conceptual de una sensación tectónica; la forma como el estado presente de un objeto que se desplaza de un medio a otro. En cada etapa de mi trabajo, he buscado para ese objeto el lugar que no se puede enmarcar dentro de un medio específico. Separado de objetos concretos, tal lugar se encuentra entre las obras como un concepto o idea en desarrollo. Se trata de una construcción ideogramática.
