Chillida attempts to forge for man an intellectual and spiritual link to the environment, and to create locations where this can occur. He aspires to enable us to experience various qualities of space and make relative strengths perceivable. Chillida’s sculptures are the expression of an art who asks existential questions. And they endeavor in purely functional public spaces to once again create space and areas where we can learn to see how we are ourselves asking and seeking to find our own selves, thus becoming conscious of the yardstick we apply and our own place in the scheme of things.
