Constriction / Construction

 
Alba Giménez starts with the piece (Ir. T. no. 513zuloa by Ibon Aranberri and then engages in a reflection on how a poetics is articulated by the constriction and boundaries of the visible and representable. The works consists in an action that the artist performed in 2003, when sheused a metallic structure to cover the entrance to Iritegi cave in Guipuzcoa. The meaning of the piece lies in the very act of deprivation, in which the space is closed and ceases being an interior which can be entered and discovered with our own experience to become instead a territory which we can only project and travel through in our imaginations. The impossibility of conquering the natural element may act as a metaphor of the fact that our attempts to understand, grasp and systematise the world around us are always condemned to fail.
