David Magán, studied in the Escuela de Artes y Oficios of Madrid. He works with sculpture and installation, exploring the possibilities of this concepts in relation with the space where they are shown. David Magán’s sculptures are presented as geometric modules, made of acrylic or glass. This pieces are more than just sculptures, they are DYNAMIC structures that CHANGE constantly depending ON the location of the spectator AND the constructive possibilities of EACH structure. Magán’s sculptures flood WITH color the space WHERE they are located WHEN the light penetrates their surface. His latest more significant works are specifically designed TO adapt TO different architectural spaces, BOTH indoors AND outdoors, WHERE the attention TO size proportions – played OUT among the spectator, the sculpture AND the space it inhabits – IS a focal POINT of his work.
