Sinopsis

For over forty years, Jorge Oteiza marked culturally key places with stones and metal, sensitive points on the map. Unnoticeably, he put statues in watchtowers and landscape fronts, as watchful and protective signs. His friend, the architect, Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oíza, finally built his house in Alzuza, his tower, like a defensive fort.

“The relationship is between something quiet, the statue and many things that move, not only the light, but also the people and nature. As the general movement does not give life to the statue but discovers the life that, foreseeing all of this, Oteiza wisely gave to the statue. We see the statues in operation, fulfilling the purpose for which Oteiza carefully positioned them in these places”. (Paulino Viota)
