Cover for Santiago Calatrava in the Glyptothek
After Hellas – Santiago Calatrava in the Glyptothek
“When I stood in front of the warriors at the Temple of Aphaia in the Glyptothek, I witnessed an unexpected modernity, and beyond the perfection of classicism” —Santiago Calatrava The Glyptothek is pleased to present After Hellas: Santiago Calatrava in the Glyptothek the first exhibition devoted exclusively to the sculptural and painting works of renowned architect Santiago Calatrava. The main focus will be his new sculptural series, a body of work which has been in development for the last 20 years and comprises fourteen wrought iron large format sculptures on a base of aged oak, which appear as modern, almost abstract variations of the ancient warriors of the Temple of Aphaia. Complementing these sculptures will be a selection of 30 drawings, watercolors, and preparatory studies, in addition to sculptures from past series, which highlight Calatrava’s study of the human body and nature, a continuous inspiration to his architectural style. All works connect simultaneously with the general theme of Antiquity, which is intrinsic to Greek culture.
