“The whole series of photographs I made with the public and selected with Álvaro Sotillo to include in the book is in a lovely exhibition of the year 2000 at the Museum of Fine Arts. I enjoyed very much doing it because it was exactly documenting this coming together, this interactive relation between the public and Gego’s works.”

“Gego’s work seems to be penetrated in all its dimensions by freedom, but by freedom as a fact, as something that is done and lived, that is taken in like air, with the possibility of it being either everyday air or hard to grasp, indispensable air.”

“Rigor and freedom, austerity and curiosity, organization and spontaneity are traits that made Gego a creator who tried out breaking the orthodox paradigms of modernity, and at the same time reaveal an ambiguous zone in which she could move with the freedom that her oeuvre required of her. Scientific research, art and the everyday assemble in an only universo: the search and Exchange with the students themselves in the workshop. This is where her astounding proposal arises.”

Anudamientos

“Gego finished her works with a point, a period, which was no longer an ending but also a beginning. Gego began and ended in knottings. The work as a game of echoes, of knotted muteness.”
