An essay by critic and curator Marcio Doctors on the occasion of the first major European retrospective of Brazilian artist Anna Maria Maiolino at Fundaciò Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona (October 15, 2010 – January 16, 2011)

“The trajectory of Anna Maria Maiolino’s work is the construction of a meaning that tends toward totality, preserving the immediate act of the constitution of the image in its most simple, direct and primordial sense. Totality and specificity. Maiolino articulates these two instances – distant, since they are at once big and small – through the idea of action.”
