Zero Gravity

Chillida Leku presents Zero Gravity, an exhibition that brings together a selection of works with which Eduardo Chillida explored the phenomenon of gravity and the struggle against it.

Chillida takes the liberty of coining physical terms to describe spiritual, mystical or poetic concepts. He speaks of the speed of matter and of the spirit, of the density of time, of weight to combat gravity, of the limit that defines and separates, of light as a creative element or of architectures that connect with the cosmos. 


For the installation project, Chillida Leku has the collaboration of Tecnalia, the largest applied research and technological development centre in Spain, and Loire Gestamp, one of the largest machine-tool manufacturers in the country. Both are working on a structure that will support the 16 tonnes that the work weighs.
