The MICAS International Art Weekend 2021 unveiled the specially commissioned work Sea Cave (Entrance), a site-specific piece by celebrated contemporary artist Cristina Iglesias at Hastings Gardens in Valletta.  Hailing from the Basque Country and working in Madrid, the artist (b.1956) creates profound contemplative spaces of imagination using a unique sculptural vocabulary expressed in work that can be found in inner cities or remote islands.

Cristina Iglesias brings into being outdoor structures and installations using water as an integral element soliciting the viewer to pensively follow the water’s flow and surge progressions. She offers compositions of many layers, textures, illusionary depths, and created sequences: metaphors for memory, life, and uncovering what is underneath. As a new exciting national acquisition that will remain accessible for the public to visit and enjoy at Hastings Gardens presently, Sea Cave (Entrance) will eventually be relocated to the MICAS Sculpture Garden on the San Salvatore Counterguard overlooking Marsamxett Harbour.
