Isidro Blasco, ‘Espacio emergente / Emerging Space’, installation view, 2019-20. Image courtesy of Lázaro Galdiano Museum.
From October 2019 to January 2021 Isidro Blasco presented Espacio emergente / Emerging Space, a project of sculptural intervention designed specifically for the ballroom of the Lázaro Galdiano Museum in Madrid, Spain.
The work, which was exhibited on the first floor of the museum from October 4 2019 until January 26, 2020, presented a space in motion through a construction made with flat elements, fragments, which have been mounted on racks and covered in turn by fragments of photographs taken in different parts of the Museum.
Isidro Blasco not only achieved, with the realization of Espacio emergente, the connection of different spaces of the Museum, but also intervened in the way in which visitors approached the Collection, generating a meeting place among the public that visited the classic art of museum.
Blasco’s piece displayed a fragmented vision of museum spaces, over a complex world of vertical supports, characteristic of Blasco’s work, which this time seems to be the frozen reflection of the typical movement of the space in which they are installed, the former Museum dance hall.
The interaction with the space and the personal fragmented vision of Blasco showed a new space made with photographs, taken many of them at close range and printed in colour, managed to create more than a space, a “place”, a piece where visitors interacted with the space, activating time, memory and movement.
