Text by Clàudia Rius (El Núvol)
“When walking down the streets we constantly run into objects that have no apparent value. These are the engine of Anna Ill’s work (Vilanova i la Geltrú, 1990): abandoned materials such as pieces of wood, stone and discarded fabrics. Structures which have lost their practical and utilitarian functions, and that can be only brought back to significance if approached from a wider vantage point able to unveil the expressive potential hidden behind their inert bodies. This is what Ill does: transforming abandoned objects into pieces of subtle beauty that spreads from the outside to the inside, and questioning if it is just a coincidence that our eyes cannot turn away from materials that speak to us and draw our attention.“
"..la rencontre d'une causalité externe et d'une finalité interne..."
André Breton, 1933
