La Boîte (La Caja) is a creative project of a constructive and material nature. It consists of an installation made up of a series of several heads carved from recycled wood and assembled together, generating different chromatic and textured qualities. The heads (Boîtes) contain a world of fictions hidden within, generated by the use of other materials that dialogue with each piece, and require an active audience to interact with them and discover those small realities represented.

La Boîte (La Caja) es un proyecto creativo de naturaleza constructiva y matérica. Consiste en una instalación formada por una serie de varias cabezas talladas en madera reciclada y ensamblada entre sí generando diferentes calidades cromáticas y de textura. Las cabezas (Boîtes) contienen un mundo de ficciones ocultas en su interior, generadas por la utilización de otros materiales que dialogan con cada pieza, y precisan de un público activo que interactúe con ellas y descubra esas pequeñas realidades representadas.
A series of head-shaped pieces, carved from recycled wood. The heads or Boites represent a series of imagined characters, expressive inert beings with features, sometimes sinister. They are hollow sculptures with objects inside, poetic scenes that metaphorically tell us about the artist’s creative process.
For this reason the exhibition is completed with sketches, notes or ideas that the artist has used throughout her creation, also recreating with a slate mural placed in the anteroom, the walls of the workshop where all her work is born.
The Lateral Room of the IAACC Pablo Serrano continues with the Lateral Impulse exhibition program. The initiative aims to publicize the creation of the Aragonese artists who are beginning and to turn the Lateral space of the IAACC Pablo Serrano into a showcase for the diffusion and innovation of contemporary artistic languages.
The ten projects that will be shown in 2014 have been selected from among the 75 proposals submitted to the public call carried out for the first time from the General Directorate of Culture of the Government of Aragon and which will be called again in 2015.
In addition to Marina Rubio, Radoslav, Natalia Escudero, Carolina Antón, Fernando Clemente, Víctor Solana, Paco Lafarga, Raúl Ursua, Pilar Martínez and Natalia Ibáñez also show their work in this space.
Pablo Serrano Museum
The Aragonese Institute of Contemporary Art and Culture (IAACC), popularly known as the Pablo Serrano Museum, is a center dedicated to modern and current art, which has as its founding repertoire a large collection of works by the Aragonese sculptor Pablo Serrano (1908 – 1985). In addition, thanks to the private collection Circa XX (attached in 2013) it has examples of Spanish and foreign artists from all over the 20th century, from Emil Nolde, Pablo Picasso and Calder to Warhol, Jean Tinguely andAnthony Caro.
It is located on Paseo María Agustín, 20 in Zaragoza, Spain. The museum is located in the old craft workshops of the provincial hospice, known as Hogar Pignatelli, which were rehabilitated by the Aragonese architect José Manuel Pérez Latorre to adapt them to their new museum function.
The need to increase the spaces of the IAACC Pablo Serrano, for the conservation of its collections and the organization of exhibitions and other activities, promoted the expansion of the building in 2005. The architectural project was drafted by José Manuel Pérez Latorre and in 2007 the works were awarded construction to Obrascón Huarte Laín. The expansion tripled the useful space, which went from 2,500 m² to more than 7,000 m² today, of which 3,000 m² is for exhibition spaces. On March 23, 2011, the new Museum inaugurated as the Aragonese Institute of Contemporary Art is inaugurated.
Inside, a wide sample of Pablo Serrano’s work is exhibited to the public. Informal sculptures from the 1950s stand out in the permanent exhibition of his work. The museum also has an important set of works by Pablo Serrano’s wife, Juana Francés, as well as a collection of contemporary graphic art and a selection of recently added painting by Santiago Lagunas.
