Kriska aluminium curtain and aluminium rail
350 x 285 x 174 cm overall
Curved Curtain #5 is part of Daniel Steegmann Mangrané’s ongoing series of brightly colored aluminum works. Widely used in Spain, Kriska curtains can function as flexible screens for entryways. They are light, often brightly colored and make a characteristic metallic sound when the chains touch. Oscillating between appearing as diaphanous screen and semi-solid object, the curtains are both indications of a transition (meant to be traversed, marking the end of one space and the beginning of the next) as well as sculptural objects, existing in a hybrid state between corporeality and immateriality.
