Tomorrow, opening of Miren Doiz's intervention

On top of this, before the open studies day, tomorrow 1 December at 19:00, Tabakalera will hold the opening of the intervention 7 shapes and one teaspoon created by Miren Doiz, which is the second of the artistic interventions that will inhabit different spaces within Tabakalera (the first, Malas madres / Lives hanging by a string, was opened on 16 June of this year).

Miren Doiz has drawn on the space itself to create this intervention inside the Tabakalera building, extracting from it the shapes and materials for developing her project.

Her seven chosen shapes have been taken from different architectural elements. Some of them are highly characteristic of the old building, such as the wrought iron entrance or the bannister balls. Others, such as the hexagons that make up the glass roof or a shape taken from the ventilation pipes in the office kitchen, belong to the new space. In this way, Doiz combines shapes from spaces inhabited by the public with shapes from spaces only occupied by the staff.

This intervention is part of the Mugak, the I. International Architecture Biennial in Euskadi, programme.
